Jack Brisco has been described as “probably the greatest champion of the 20th century”, a description that a lot of people would nod their heads in agreement at. Brisco was a pure athlete, winning the NCAA Wrestling National Championship in 1965 in his junior year, making him the first Native American to do so. He went on to hold several championships in the NWA until finally defeating Harley Race in 1973. He was a multiple-time tag champion with his brother Gerald (a legend in hid own right!) working against many of the best the business has ever seen across the world. Jack retired from wrestling in 1985 to focus on the Brisco Brother Body Shop, which he ran with his brothers Gerald and Bill. He was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2005 and the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008.
Jack left us on February 1, 2010, but he will forever be known as one of the greatest world champions in the history of the sport.
