      ,Doug Furnas was a pro wrestler in the early to mid-1980. He was an accomplished weightlifter and powerlifter holding numerous titles in his carrier.I would say that he held his own the ring:a power wrestler but very quick on his feet .He did very well against some of the big names in the 80"s(Ric Flair comes to mind in one match and i believe he tag-teamed with Dr.Death Steve Williams on one occasion). I have been following pro wrestling for many years,and he will be missed in and out of the squared circle.If you get a chance try looking up a video of him on You Tube.
