    Chuck Langerman’s daily wrestling trivia concerns Barry Horowitz, one of the best-known job guys in WWF history. Horowitz wrestled at Florida State University, which played into one of his characters, Jack “The Stretcher” Hart. He also wrestled under the name Bret Hart in the Carolinas, which was confusing at the time. In fact, because the Carolinas TV, where he was Bret Hart, played in Toronto since that was essentially part of the Mid-Atlantic circuit, when Calgary’s Bret Hart was brought to Toronto, he had to use the name “Buddy the Hearthrob Hart,” a name he’s probably wanted to forget for sometime. Barry Horowitz after college was trained by Boris Malenko in Tampa. He now runs a sports nutrition business called Vitamin Discount Center and still, at 52, occasionally wrestles.
