From back in the days before political correctness



Joe Scarpa, wrestling persona known as Chief Jay Strongbow


Joe Scarpa, who became one of the best-known professional wrestlers of the 1970s and ‘80s after he took on the persona of Chief Jay Strongbow, an American Indian whose war dance foretold the downfall of many opponents, died Tuesday.

Chief, when it came to the entertainment in the pre-entertainment era, there was nobody better than you. May god's love be with you, your family and fans. I will never forget your Indian (native american)strap match against Greg The Hammer Valentine.

RIP Chief Jay Strongbow.

The old-school wrestlers who performed before the age of steroids seem to be living longer than many of those who came along afterward.

No kidding. You can thank Vinnie Mac Jr. for that.

My dad worked at the local gas station in the mid 70's in Hamburg, Pa where was home of the world renowned Hamburg Field House which had all kinds of big wrestling matches in that time. He met all these guys. RIP Chief
