joe is my wife's cousin.  he and don had great football careers back in the day...but that was the time when they needed to work in the off season.  
don and joe formed a pretty formidable face team during the mid 60's.
i'd be interested in hearing any comment by any west coasters that saw their work in the ring.
were they a gimmick because they played for the rams...or did they know their way around the ring?

Shadow, I don't remember seeing them in the ring, but I know that back in those days pro football players wrestling in the off-season always got a push...and (almost) always as babyfaces...

In northern CA, Hank Renner always would make a big deal about the fact that the football players "chose" wrestling  or "preferred" wrestling. I mean, even back then as a kid I knew they were just doing it as an off-season job to help make ends meet.

Who, if they were good enough at football, would choose wrestling over football?  

Any chance we could get Joe to participate on this board?

They also spent some time in the Mid-Atlantic region.
