Online World of Wrestling is pleased to welcome Nick Bockwinkel into its Hall of Fame! Mr. Bockwinkel had an amazing career and his inclusion into the OWW Hall of Fame is long overdue.
OWW’s radio host Alex Goff wrote this tribute to Mr. Bockwinkel:
During his time in the American Wrestling Association Nick Bockwinkel helped define what it meant to be a world champion. Three times he held their world tag team titles with “The Crippler” Ray Stevens. Managed by the legendary Bobby “The Brain” Heenan this combination showed the world true tag team excellence. Nick also is four-time AWA world heavyweight champion, second only to owner Verne Gagne. Nick Bockwinkel put the word “professional” in Professional Wrestling and was considered by his peers to be an excellent wrestler, with great technical ability, ring psychology, and charismatic promos. In 2007 he was elected president of the Cauliflower Alley Club, a non-profit organization. It is our pleasure to welcome Nick Bockwinkel into the OWW Hall of Fame.
