"Old School" Oliver John, 39, 6'0", 236#, is what a pro wrestler should look like. Burly, hard, with thighs of steel and a jaw that looks like it could crack lug nuts. There are too many shots of him with a microphone for my tastes, but he wears his tights well, so there's something to look at, at least. He wrestles on the West Coast, where, along with Derek Sanders and Zach Reeb, he performs an anti-immigrant heel gimmick in lucha-libre shows. Seventies wrestler Paul DeMarco trained him in the old-school ways back in the late eighties, when he was a teenager.
