Left My Wallet: The legendary Bill Apter

"Left My Wallet" returns with one of the most influential men in the wrestling business of the past 40 years and 2018 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame inductee, Bill Apter.

Bill is, without a doubt, one of the nicest men in the sport and that certainly comes out in this amazing talk where he recalls the days of his youth as Yankees fan in Queens, New York. He talks about going to Yankee Stadium with his father and shares some great Yankees stories.

The talk then turns to his relationship with Muhammed Ali and traveling with "The Greatest". Bill also tells stories about George Foreman and Larry Holmes while working for Stanley Weston. He also talks about his love of singing, his comedy/musical act, Barry Manilow, the interactions and meetings he has had with many of the top entertainers of the past 60 years, and his love of performing.

Finally, he gives his thoughts on the term "Apter Mag" and what being inducted into the Observer Hall of Fame meant to him.

It's a packed weekend of wrestling coming up and what better way to kick it off with than a talk with one of the most respected and well known contributors the wrestling business has ever known.
