I Declare Today National "Dr. D" David Schultz Day

I've decided to take it upon myself to declare today National "Dr. D" David Schultz day. David Schultz was a professional wrestler during the 1970's and 80's who portrayed what you might call a typical redneck type character. Whether or not he actually was a redneck is anyone's guess. I'd assume he was indeed. In those times, the fact that professional wrestling was "fake" or "fixed" was a closely guarded secret by those within the business itself. It was thought that if fans knew that it was not really a true sporting event that people would no longer pay to attend such events. In the video below, you'll see the great length that "Dr. D" went through to protect his lively hood when 20/20 reporter John Stossel asks the dreaded question...

John Stossel later sued the World Wrestling Federation for the amount of $425,000 for this incident.

Here we have vignette entitled At Home With "Dr. D" David Schultz where David is trying to convince wrestling fans that at his residence, he is just an ordinary man and not the psychotic, violent man that he is inside the ring. Pure genius if you ask my opinion.

Now go out and celebrate National "Dr. D" David Schultz day.
