George Steele was a little before my time but did see some of his stuff when watching older shows, which like many wrestling fans I did a ton of when I first started watching. I remember being really thrown off by him and his actions, it grabbed your attention 100% because you didn't know what he was doing or going to do. As for Bass I remember being amazed at how big she was, think she even dwarfed Chyna. Although the poor women's wrestling career was one long "she's actually a man" joke. Sad to hear they've both passed today.
Shitty couple of days for wrestling deaths. They say they come in threes. Chavo/Steel/Koloff. I know some people will say Bass, but let's be honest. Her contributions to the wrestling world were so miniscule. (not that her dying isn't sad. Just saying those other three were in a completely different wrestling class than her)
Oh, no question about it. No disrespect to Nicole Bass but I always perceived her more as a freak show act than anything. Chavo Classic, George "The Animal" Steele and Ivan Koloff have left remarkable legacies behind them. And it's a real shame that Ivan Koloff wasn't inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame while he was alive.
