1982: Mighty Joe Thunder was brought into the WWF, but ended up being so bad he was fired after a handful of tv tapings..
Bob Leonard wrote (August 2011): I can add a little info for you: he also worked as Rip Miller, “brother” of Dr. Bill, Ed and Dan, in Stampede in 1959-60-61. Just parts of each year, I think, and not full time. I also have a note that he worked as Rip Carlson, though I don’t know where. I’m guessing this was very early in his career, and as I recall him he was very, very green when he was up here.
