In early days of TV, there was a wrestler that got paid mostly for being extremely
grotesque as result of acromegaly. I can't remember his name, and can't find it on
Internet, though I found names of successors with same disease. Hell of a way to
make a living. Of course if the bouts were not phony, he'd have been killed.

P.S. The acromegalic wrestler was called The Angel.

Thanks, Fiberbabe. Since he did a good deed, I won't call Oakeley an "ath hole".
