Whatever happened to this guy? And were those cuts on his head from blading or what? THIS guy use to scare the crap out of me--talk about one of the most frightening wrestlers of all time.

From what I understand Abdulla still wrestles form time to time and I think he was even on the Legends of Wrestling PPV. He's getting extremely old though (He's got to be atleast 60).

He also runs a restaruant somewhere. I don't want to know what he puts in the burgers.

I saw him a couple of years back wrestling Terry Funk in Toronto on AWF's Scar Wars card. Both guys were crimson by the end of the night.

IIRC, his restaurant is in Atlanta and is called Abdullah the Butcher's House of Ribs.

Must be due to blading for a big part.
This is the guy that uses forks like other wrestlers use hmm...punches?
So a fair share probably ended in his own forehead as well..

Bret Hart said in an interview that when he was a kid he was terrified of Abdullah, who worked for his dad's promotion.

I remember in Mick Foley's first book where he talks about Abdullah having fun by putting entire poker chips inside those grooves on top of his head.

BY a couple of different accounts, Abdullah the Butcher (Larry Shreeve) was born January 1, 1936, making him 66 years old. His restaurant gets good reviews too.



He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.

He just happened to wrestle this weekend over here in Puerto Rico where he comes about once a month, and he can still bleed with the best of them. He has gained about 50 pounds or more and all he does when fighting is punching and geting a plastic fork out of his love handles. Thats about it...hopefully i can find some recent photos of him to put up.

Edit...and here it is...

He's been to Hull a few times in the past few years.

And people think Terry Funk is old! I'm not sure which one is gonna give it up first.

Abdullah is considered a legend in Japan for his work in AJPW in the 70's and 80's.



The Japanese have a weird fixation with old timers/legends and still pay to see Abby. In fact, the Abby just returned form working All Japan's Jan. 2002 tour. I know that AJPW is a hotbed for gaijin wrestlers(Abby, Stan Hansen, the Funks, the Briscos, Vader, the Destroyer, Steve Williams, ect.) but COME ON! You wanna see this guy waddling around the ring for 6 minutes?!

But serves up some mighty good food!

"After years of touring the world as a professional wrestler, Larry Shreeve - known to most by his fear-invoking moniker Abdullah the Butcher - opened this popular eatery in West Atlanta. Nowadays, instead of carving into the heads of his fellow grapplers, Shreeve carves away at mouthwatering ribs at what has become a haven for wrestling fans and hearty eaters alike. If you're not in the mood for barbecue, Abdullah's also offers a wide selection of Chinese food that's just as good. And while you wait for your food, you can look at the many pictures of Shreeve and other famous wrestlers that adorn the walls. If you're lucky, you just may get a glimpse of the man who was once called "The Madman from the Sudan." Don't worry, he won't hurt you. He'll only fill your stomach with good food. -- Tony Jenkins

PLUS HE'S CANADIAN!!

Details are sketchy at best, so we've taken what little information we have, added our own theories, and concluded that whatever the likely disaster, it's most likely the work of our former president Richard M Nixon, even though he is rumored dead." -Kent Brockman

I think there's one thing we haven't noticed about Brock. He's obviously not getting over as a heel, but think about it. Has Brock done anything particularly heelish or evil? I'm asking if BROCK has done anything evil, not Heyman.
