• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran Al Perez celebrates his 58th birthday today.
He wrestled for various promotions such as WCCW, Mid-South, Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) / WCW, GWF, … and he even wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation in 1989 & 1990, but only did House Shows, so only very few of his WWFmatches were actually taped.
Al Perez looked a lot like Seth Rollins does now, with the difference that Perez was a real heavyweight and actually had the body of a professional wrestler.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AL PEREZ!
