The Grappler recounts wild times in Portland with Playboy Buddy Rose, learning humility from Dusty Rhodes and Ole Anderson, having fun in the ring with Tommy Rich and Ted DiBiase, working closely with Roddy Piper and being chased in Texas Stadium by Nord the Barbarian. Also, the Grappler gets tripped up in Memphis, complimented by Ernie Ladd and shut down by Tom Peterson’s Furniture…it’s all here! Send in your comments and questions to fanmail@theraveneffect.com
