Brian (Yandrisivetz) Knobbs and Jerry (Saginovich) Sags, members of the tag team the Nasty Boys. Former WWF/E and WCW tag team champions. Knobbs, in recent years was a regular on Hulk Hogan's reality show and it would not surprise me if he turns up on Brooke Hogan's new reality show. Sags has been out of wrestling for many years due to injuries and he maintains a low profile. They both reside in Florida.

Dwayne Johnson was not born in the Lehigh Valley. The area was fortunate to have had him as a Freedom High School student and athlete. Johnson was largely a transient due to his father wrestling. He spent his childhood in San Francisco, Memphis, and Florida. At some point in the 80's the family settled in this area. Since that time they have moved to Florida.

Catasaqua's Larry Miller (NBA player), Pat Kelly(NY Yankees), and Jon Linton(Buffalo Bills)

Northampton's Brian Schnider(NY Mets) His father also plaed MLB I think.

Also, didn't the Angry Samoans of the WWF have some connection with the valley. I know they used to have that wrestling school over by Jordan Lanes.

Afa Anoia relocated and settled in the Lehigh Valley in the 1980's. He retired and opened up his wrestling school at Jordan Lanes in the late 80's-early 90's. Later on he moved the school to the Hamilton Parkway area near the Allentown Bust terminal. I think it is still there. Afa has trained many wrestlers but 2 from this area who have gone on to National acclaim include Billy Kidman from Allentown and Gene Snitsky from the Pocono region.

Sika did not settle in this area. He is in Florida but of course will visit Afa and family on a fairly regular basis.
