A statue honoring Reggie “The Crusher” Lisowski was unveiled on Sunday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dawn Lisowski, daughter of the late pro wrestling legend, took part in the unveiling and praised the statue by labeling it “the best possible image” of her father. The event was attended by other members of the Lisowski family, AWA legends Baron Von Raschke and Kenny J, and various city officials. Read more at JSOnline.com.
Powell’s POV: It really is a cool statue that looks like the AWA legend, complete with a beer keg on his shoulder. Crusher was billed as “The Man Who Made Milwaukee Famous” and it’s awesome to see that his legend will live on in the city. It’s also great that the $40,000 statue was funded by a Go Fund Me campaign.
