"Captain Redneck" Dick Murdoch

Born 1947
Died June 15, 1996
He was 49 years old

Dick Murdoch was truly a man in the ring. Someone who was tough as nails and gave the best match possible everytime out.

I've always liked those who could get the job done in the ring, regardless of whether they were a face or a heel. When he gave Nikita Koloff a brainbuster on the floor and teamed with Dusty Rhodes as the Texas Outlaws are some things that I will remember. You can't beat a nickname like Captain Redneck either.
