Left My Wallet: Wrestling stories with Barry Horowitz


Left My Wallet returns with one of the more interesting pro wrestling characters from the 80s and 90s, Barry Horowitz.

We all know Barry as the guy who patted himself on the back, but you'll get to know another side of the former WWF and WCW competitor as he talks football, MMA, nutrition, and some of the intricacies of in-ring work. 

He talks about his love for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and dislike for Jameis Winston, working a dark match with Ken Shamrock before the UFC Hall-of-Famer even started in MMA, his workout and nutrition regimen, and what keeps him looking virtually the same now at almost 60 as when he was 30.

Barry and I then delve into the worker's aspect of talking pro wrestling as Barry discusses who the best and smoothest worker he ever stepped in the ring with was, working for All Japan, his amateur wrestling career, the one piece of coaching advice Jake Roberts gave to him, famous shooters, the amateur style that was a hallmark of Florida Championship Wrestling, training with Dean Malenko, and so much more.

It's an in-depth discussion about various topics with one of the most memorable enhancement talents of all time.
