• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Legend Gerald “Jerry” Brisco celebrates his 73rd birthday today.
For most of his career Gerald formed a Tag Team with his real life brother Jack Brisco and together they wrestled as “The Brisco Brothers”.
During the 60s, 70s & early 80s they toured the territories and wrestled for promotions like Georgia Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions and Championship Wrestling from Florida.
They also held minority interests in Georgia Championship Wrestling, which they used (in addition to Jim Barnett’s vote) to overrule Ole Anderson and sell the company and their weekly “World Championship Wrestling” TV show to Vince McMahon in 1984. The infamous “Black Friday” followed, when McMahon and the WWF were seen on TBS.
The Brisco Brothers also joined the World Wrestling Federation that year but retired a few months later in early 1985.
Gerald then started to work as a booker & road agent for the WWF and years later during the Attitude Era became famous again as one of Vince McMahon’s “stooges”.
In 2008, both brothers were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by John “Bradshaw” Layfield.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GERALD BRISCO!
