Gerald Brisco was inducted into the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2005. The Florida Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame recently recognized him as an Outstanding American.  

A native of Blackwell, Oklahoma, Brisco comes from a famous wrestling family and a famous wrestling state. He was a three-time place winner in the Oklahoma high school state wrestling tournament and wrestled at Oklahoma State.  

He won many regional titles and in 1981 became NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion of the world. He and his brother, Jack, also won the world tag-team championship. 

Brisco currently serves as a talent scout for WWE, and his talent evaluation in advance of the Impact Pro Wrestling show on Friday is one of the most popular events of Hall of Fame weekend.  

Gerry is a fan favorite who brings life to every event he attends. We are proud to kick off the 12 days of Christmas with a true living legend.
