Bobby Edward Duncum Sr. (born August 14, 1944) is an American former professional wrestler from the late 1960s to late 1980s, performing for the World Wide Wrestling Federation, National Wrestling Alliance and American Wrestling Association. He is the father of the late wrestler Bobby Duncum Jr.. His son died of an accidental overdose in January 2000.

American football career

Duncum was a three-year letterman with the West Texas A&M Buffaloes football team from 1964 to 1966.[3] He was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the thirteenth round (331st overall) of the 1967 NFL/AFL Draft.[4] He appeared in only four games with the Cardinals in 1968.

Professional wrestling career

His wrestling persona was that of a heel cowboy and he wrestled some of the top babyface stars of the era such as Bob Backlund and Bruno Sammartino. In the AWA, along with Nick Bockwinkel, Ray Stevens and Blackjack Lanza, he was a member of famous wrestling stable, managed by Bobby Heenan, known as The Heenan Family.[5] His famous catch phrase during interviews (and written phonetically) was "You unnastan?" ("you understand?"). His final match was on November 16, 1986 in Clarksburg, West Virginia, where he tag teamed with Lord Zoltan to defeat Troy Orndorff and Kurt Kaufman.
