Mr. Backlund was not only the greatest wrestler and athlete of all time! He was the greatest gentlemen on Sports TV! He was an outstanding example to everyone I knew including myself! He spoke wisdom through the television set WORLD-WIDE and reached many kids turning to boys onward to teens and eventually men! He was a great mentor even when the WWE had him reinvent himself in later years! Mr. Backlund thank you for being a GREAT Wrestler, GREAT Man, and Great Role model for MILLIONS++ of people to emulate! God Bless you, yours, and America for great people like yourself!
