Remember Savannah Jack? ...

Well, if you don't, the Minneapolis City Pages does, and so do I (although, once he talks about wrestling in front of sixty-thousand people at the Louisiana Superdome and his near-year UWF Television title reign, my memory begins to get hazy).

Not to discredit Jack's career, but he was, in many ways, pro wrestling's best definition of a one-hit wonder, briefly wrestling for Bill Watts, who (even more) briefly looked to Jack, for his latest hope of recreating The Junkyard Dog's drawing power.

I'd certainly be interested in learning if Jack (Theodore, not Savannah, Russell, I think) and/or his doctors believe his admitted use of steroids were in any way responsible for his history of poor health.
