Adventures in Larryland! Life in Professional Wrestling
by Larry Zbyszko
Wrestlings self-proclaimed Living Legend may never wear a championship belt again, but hes definitely not down for the count. Adventures in Larryland! is the entertaining, often hilarious story of Larry Zbyszkos remarkable ascent to wrestling notoriety.
Voted Rookie of the Year in 1974, Zbyszko enjoyed 30 glorious years as a top draw in the wild and wacky world of professional wrestling. Attendance records were shattered when he wrestled the original Living Legend, Bruno Sammartino, in 1980 and achieved victory by hitting his former mentor with a chair (a rarity at the time). With that match, Zbyszko stepped out from Sammartinos shadow and was transformed from a baby-faced hero to one of the most hated wrestlers of his time. Afterwards, Zbyszko was careful to never miss a chance to remind the wrestling world that he had become the New Living Legend.
Later that decade, Zbyszko wrestled former Japanese Olympic wrestler, Masa Saito, in front of 70,000-plus fans at Japans Tokyo Dome. In the late 1990s, he became a high-profile color commentator for the Atlanta based WCW, and would still put on his boots for special occasions. Hes credited with saving the TNTs number one rated show, Monday Nitro, from the evil clutches of the New World Order and in 1998, Zbyszkos appearance in back-to-back pay per views produced the two largest buy-rates that WCW had ever had.
