Tom Zenk, Nikita Koloff, Rick Rude, Curt Hennig, Brady Boone (Battle Cat), John Nord (Berzerker) and Barry Darsow (Smash/Repo Man) all came from Robbinsdale, MN and were born in either 1958 or 1959. Most went to the same high school and all became wrestlers.
Sadly, despite all being under 60, 4 of the 7 of them have died.
Zenk was perhaps best known for his tag-team with Rick Martel in the 1980s, the Can-Am Connection as well as his time in Jim Crockett Productions as “the Z Man”.
