In the Fall of 2016, professional wrestling legend Michael Sam Houston joined us here on CYInterview for an in-depth discussion about his life and the adversities he has overcome [see here].

Additionally, he claims that singer Hank Williams Jr. took a liking to his mother at a bar where they met, by chance, after WrestleMania 4.

Dan Severn Wants to Be Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and He Should Be: Amateur Wrestling/MMA/Pro Wrestling Star Speaks Out
In amateur wrestling, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, Dan Severn’s contributions stand out. Today, Dan is no longer actively fighting, yet he is still active in both pro wrestling and mixed martial arts as a trainer and promoter. Though many might focus on his accomplishments in the UFC and mixed martial arts in general, his time in pro wrestling is quite notable as well. Dan was a two time NWA World Champion. One of his runs as champ was one of the longest in the NWA title’s history. His reign as champion gave him a chance to spend time with professional wrestling legend Lou Thesz. A former WWE superstar, he was part of the company during one of the most successful periods of that promotion’s history.
