In Memoriam - "The Destroyer" Dick Beyer Encore Presentation
By Westwood One
TIJ pays tribute to the late, great Dick "The Destroyer" Beyer with this encore presentation of an episode originally recorded March 10, 2017, and first released that September. Dick Beyer aka masked wrestler, Destroyer, makes his TIJ debut, and he’s got story after story after story… from his feud with Japanese wrestling star Rikidozan to working with Gorgeous George, Lou Thesz, and Andre The Giant. He’s been in every territory from Oregon to Minneapolis to Los Angeles to Buffalo, but never Mexico (and you’ll find out why). You’ll also discover when and where he started wearing the mask, and why he needed his then-wife’s help in creating them. He’s breaking down the origins of the Doctor X gimmick, and how he feels about Ric Flair adopting Destroyer’s Figure 4 Leglock finish!
