Portland Wrestlecast: Rocky Johnson's Pacific Northwest run

<p>You know Rocky Johnson from WWF, Memphis, Hawaii and California, but he also had a very successful run in the Pacific Northwest in 1981-82 with heavyweight and tag team title reigns.</p> <p>In this episode of the Portland Wrestlecast, I look&nbsp;at one of my favorite babyfaces who came through Portland when I was a kid. Johnson&nbsp;had a level of professionalism above&nbsp;everyone else in the territory that came from the experience of being a top star all over the world for years.</p> <p>He also had one of the most memorable debuts in territory history that sent a message to the fans that the new top babyface was in town. He feuded with Buddy Rose and&nbsp;teamed&nbsp;with King Parsons,&nbsp;Brett Sawyer, and Andre the Giant. Rocky even challenged Ric Flair for the NWA title during a Northwest tour.</p> <p>Enjoy this edition of the Wrestlecast with lots of memories of Rocky Johnson.&nbsp;</p> <p>{radioShow dmdocuments/PWC35ROCKYJOHNSON.mp3} {membership 4}</p>
