"Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers meant much more to wrestling than just being a former world champion. He took the sport in a new direction with his ring persona and continued to have an impact decades later. There is some interesting information to gained about Rogers by reading the biography of Lou Thesz, "Hooker."
