I was in Allentown, PA. in 1983 for a TV taping for WWWF. After the matches, I went to the bar at my hotel and joined some other wrestlers .
This was during a time when Russia had just (accidentally) shot down an American plane. This one particular guy in the bar was very upset about it and chose to (TRY TO ) take it out on me. After a couple of times of telling him to shut up, he came over to our table and approached the five of us, telling us (directing his comments toward me) how terrible the Russians are and that they should stay at home.
This angered me so much that I jumped up and went for him... before I could grab him, one of the Samoans picked up a pencil from the table and stuck it right in his head!!
This rascal was so surprised and scared that he took off running with me
behind chasing him through the parking lot, into the woods about a half a mile,
screaming at him. Even though I was in the best shape of my life, I
lost him and I figure he must have dived under some thick bush and laid real quiet. I returned to the bar and resumed the party.
