  1. The Colossal Halfbreed! What a talent! Him and David Von Erich were the best talents of World Class

  2. The WCCW was on either ESPN or I think the Sports Network. I grew up in NY and remember trying to find it because they were bouncing them around every year.
    So many talents in there that I always wondered what happened to them after WCCW became USWA

  3. Gino was fantastic and you loved hating him. He was loud like Flair but hatable like Tully. He wouldn't have fit in the WWF at that time, but he'd be perfect for Crockett and Watts' UWF.

  4. I remember watching WCCW on Channel 66 in Chicago when I was little. Gino was the truth & he would've been better in NWA.

  5. Gino was a stud. Gino had the ability and the potential to become even better than he already was. I think Gino Hernandez would've done well in the World Wrestling Federation, as a heel to start. There is a number of Wrestlers with personas that reminded me of Gino. Sure, Ric Flair, "Ravishing" Rick Rude, "The Model" Rick Martel, "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig, among others. Gino had that hot shot heel arrogance and charisma, and he had the look. I was actually thinking about Shawn Michaels in his early years in the mid 1980's before his "Sexy Boy/Heartbreak Kid" persona on television went to the moon and he was still a bit tame on the mic. Gino definitely had flash, he wasn't a small guy and he really could wrestle.

  6. Gino Hernandez would have been a excellent horsemen after all he use to team with Tully Blanchard.
