They were the villains everyone loved to hate: Killer Kowalski, Ernie Ladd, and the Fabulous Moolah. They were ethnic heroes, someone just like you that you could cheer for: Ivan Putski, Pedro Morales, Peter Maivia. They were the stars that shined the brightest, and left an indelible mark on the memories of countless fans. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In a time when professional wrestling was divided into territories, no place created bigger Superstars than World Wrestling Entertainment.
