• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 65th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Jeep Swenson (Real name: Robert Swenson Jr.).
Jeep Swenson used to wrestle for various promotions such as Fritz Von Erich’s World Class Championship Wrestling (WCW) & Global Wrestling Federation (GWF), before a very brief stint in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as The Final Solution aka The Ultimate Solution in 1996.
Most people will remember Swenson as Bane in the 1997 Hollywood movie ‘Batman & Robin’, but some Old School WWF Fans might also remember him from the 1989 movie No Holds Barred, where he played the role of Zeus’ “Battle of the Tough Guys” opponent Lugwrench Perkins.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
January 5, 1957 – August 18, 1997
