Subject: Rooster Fleming Hangs up His Cleats

In a storied career, perhaps Rooster’s most recounted caper was when in the early 1980’s, he and some buddies made the unwise decision to pick a backstage fight with hall of fame wrestler and Picksburgh legend Bruno Sammartino. :o Sammartino was greatly outnumbered, and fellow wrestler The Iron Sheik joined in the fray, wearing only a towel. As Bruno and The Sheik later recounted, “we proceeded to clean house with those guys”.  ;D
