The first time I came across Billy Jack Strong was in one of those pro wrestling magazines way back in the 1980s. He went by another name then, Sadistic Steve Strong, a huge heel who was powerful and ruthless in the ring. It was only recently that I found out Strong's real name is Steve DiSalvo. This former powerlifter weighed around 300 pounds at the peak of wrestling career; he went by several other names when he wrestled for WCW and WWE. Read more about him here. And check out this video from You Tube where Strong wrestles Tom "Rocky" Strong in 1988 (screencaps below).
