    Didn’t mean to sound smug. Text is never a good indicator. LOL and true with Wikipedia. I noticed that it also said Muhammad Ali and James Brown. I just have them switched when I said it. Though, no Wiki for me. Those were just the first few that came to mind.

    I am 26 and don’t know much about George. That doesn’t mean I am not a fan. I just never looked him up yet.

    Don’t have a go at the guy, he was just asking, I guess Boomski tried to impart some information, even if it was in the smug tone and content of someone who’d just hit up Wikipedia.

    Like JT, I know the history of Gorgeous George. Though I’m 29, age doesn’t matter as I have known about Gorgeous George since I was a kid. The main factor is if you don’t now about Gorgeous George, then you really don’t know Ric Flair, James Brown, Muhammad Ali, and many others. All whom have acknowledged that Gorgeous George had influenced their styles. Just saying :D
