Last night it was announced that the The Madman from The Sudan, Abdullah the Butcher would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. If there was anyone more crazier then him then speak now because this guy was crazy. He was hardcore before the word hardcore became a term in pro wrestling. The Butcher traveled the world and won many titles.
He got into the ring with some of the all time greats including Terry Funk, Jacques Rougeau Sr., The Sheik, Harley Race, Bobo Brazil, Jack Brisco, Stan Hansen, Giant Baba, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Bruiser Brody and Carlos Colon.
I remember when he was in the Chamber of Horrors match in 1991 during the days of WCW. He was perceived as a major threat to Sting’s WCW Championship reign. Although he never held a championship in WCW, WWE, or ECW he is a title in his own right. He inspired many hardcore wrestlers including Kevin Sullivan, Cactus Jack (Mick Foley), Kamala, and Sabu. He has a legacy that will never be duplicated and his craziness will never be matched.
Congratulations to the Madman from Sudan, Abdullah the Butcher for going into the WWE Hall of Fame.
