Highspots.com Roundtable Discussion: Enhancement Talent
Featuring: George South, Barry Horowitz & Salvatore Bellomo
In the business of pro wrestling there are stars and star makers. Most of the time when we sit down with the stars pro wrestling they have very little to say because everything has come easy to them. In our experience sometimes the people on the short end of the wrestling stick have more to say. Well, we found 3 individuals who are not short on opinions.
George South is a 30 year veteran and has worked for everyone, WWF, WCW, Jim Crockett Promotions, and UWF Mid-South just to name a few. But at no time or place was he ever treated like a star. Despite having a considerable amount of talent he never got that big push his career needed. His talent is very visible in his 20 plus minute match with Ric Flair on TBS.
Barry Horowitz is view has the "King of the Jobbers" which is a completely incorrect title. Horowitz was a champion in several territories and has always been regarded as a very skilled wrestler in the ring. Due to politics and circumstances beyond his control he found his shoulders on the mat more times than he would like to mention.
Salvatore Bellomo was brought in to the WWF in the early 80's to be the next Bruno Sammartino. Needless to say that wasn't the case. Bellomo never was upset by this fact because even though his role considerable smaller than the next Bruno he still made 150,000 dollars working for the WWF in one year in the early 80's. And that was a lot of money back then.
Watch has these men discuss with each other what it was like to view this business from the bottom up.
