New photos of the Ultimate Warrior, Paul Orndorff, and others ’80s WWF stars

The Slam! sports site ran a cool photo slideshow from the Legends of the Ring 14 convention, which took place earlier this month in New Jersey.
Among the great current photos you can see of 1980s WWF stars are:
  • Ultimate Warrior (who’d you’d probably never recognize these days without his face paint)
  • “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, who has happily reported beating cancer
  • Virgil, who looks just about the same as he used to
  • A classic, old-school wrestling pose by Greg “The Hammer” Valentine and Brutus Beefcake, who held the WWF Tag Team Titles before Beefcake’s barber days
  • Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka
  • Women wrestlers Lelani Kai and Judy Martin

    Mascaras hasn’t changed much ….
    No love for Itsuki Yamazaki, one of the Jumping Bomb Angels?

    Has anyone figured out who the ring announcer was for the WWF back in the 1980’s at The Boston Garden? WWE Classics has a classic 1985 wrestling card from The Boston Garden. The late Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred Hayes do the commentary but they never mention the ring announce by name. I have watched it a few times now and nothing….let me know, thanks.

    Its always a good thing when you see wrestlers from previous era’s give back to the fans, such as the Legends of the Ring 14 convention. Mr. Wonderful does look a little weary. I can only hope and pray that he gets healthy. Jeez, looking at the pic of The Hammer, Greg Valentine and Brutus Beefcake, I strongly think they could get in the ring at this very moment. Good Stuff!
