    Spiccoli is a good one.

    What about S.D. "Special Delivery" Jones. Is he considered a jobber? I remember King Kong Bundy beat him in a few seconds one time.

    And, as far as I'm concerned, this may be one of life's most important revelations.

    That was S.D's biggest claim to fame- losing to KKB in nine seconds at Wrestlemania.

    Definitely.

    Btw, does anyone know what a JTTS is in the wrestling business?

    Jobber to the Stars. A guy who beats up the lowly jobbers and mid-card guys but consistently loses to the top talent. Zig(Dolph) would be the first guy that comes to my mind today that would be a JTTS.

    Leaping Lanny Poffo was often considered a jobber. Many of you may remember him as "The Genius." Anyone know his family tree???

    You know your wrestling, my friend. LL was a terrific athlete, as was his brother. I think Macho even played in the Reds' minor league system.

    Catcher in the Reds farm system, as well as a couple of other teams.

    As for Lanny, I loved his run as The Genius.

    I remember Tim Horner well. Used to watch him get the snot beat out of him all the time on World Championship Wrestling on WTBS.

    Terry Gibbs was another lonesome loser.
