Yep. He was also supposedly a victim of Missy Hyatt promising him a blowjob if he let Taz beat him in ECW. Then got told “I don’t blow jobbers” if the rumour is to be believed. Poor sod. In hindsight he should’ve just battered Taz and killed the myth years before RVD.

The Eliminators, Shane Douglas, Team Taz and a few others were all at ringside for the match.  Certainly looking back at it with today's eyes it's like Heyman had them at ringside should Varelans go into business for himself and while he may have got some licks in on Taz, he'd be greatly outnumbered and would probably ended up have taking a nasty beating.

Its one of my favorite ECW stories. Like most things id imagine the tale has been twisted abit from the actual reality of what happened, but its a good story.

This is a big one. Leon Spinks has died.

Really sad news. I saw his brother Michael had been posting asking people to pray for him just the other day. Thought he’d be older than 67 as well.

The moment he beat Ali;

sad news.

Spinks, like most of the 70's/80's heavyweights i became aware of through the Champions Forever doc. as a kid. I remember being blown away when i saw Ali lost to him. In my head Ali was an untouchable, so to see him losing to seem weird looking fella with no teeth always felt a bit strange to me. Crazy that he did it in only his 8th fight.
