“Eddie Graham, weight 240lbs. and his wrestling partner Haystacks Calhoun, weight about 603 lbs. One night we went out to Beach Road Chicken Dinners and Haystacks ate 20 chickens.  In fact TV 4 came out and took some pictures of him with all the chicken bones about 15 inches high.  We went out to a wholesale grocery company and he weighed 670 lbs.  He was a great guy. In the 1960’s.” LS

    Those were the days that fans of wrestling could get close and really get to know them one on one. Both of these guys were great to talk with.
