Dick Slater Shoots From The Lip
In Wrestling Perspective #102

Dick Slater has seen it all and done it all in the wrestling business. Slater's traveled the country and the world headlining shows in front of thousands of fans. He has many stories to tell, but, until now, had nowhere to tell them.

In Part II of his interview with Wrestling Perspective, featured in Issue 102, Dirty Dick holds nothing back.

He is beholden to no one in the wrestling business.

If he doesn't like someone, he explains why and some of his targets will shock you.

If he admires someone, he pays his respects to those who deserve them.

If you thought Part I of the Slater interview, featured in Issue 101, was insightful, wait until you read the final part of that discussion in Issue 102.

In this incredible interview, Slater discusses ...

  • Who was the most difficult promoter he worked for in his lengthy career and why.
  • His stint in the WWF as The Rebel and his thoughts on why the gimmick failed.
  • The reasons why he walked out on the WWF.
  • His time tagging with Dick Murdoch as the Hardliners.
  • His amazing experiences in the Middle East being trapped in Kuwait while a war was taking place.
  • The devastating injury that forced him to quit the business.
  • The numerous problems he had with doctors and the several brutal operations he underwent. It's a malpractice suit waiting to happen.
  • The difficult road to recovery.
  • His thoughts on the current wrestling scene.

These topics and many others are addressed by Slater in Wrestling Perspective #102.
