Bob Backlund was one of the most respected wrestlers world wide for many years. I was not upset when he turned heel. I was upset however when Arnold S. passed away and Bob did not even acknowledge it publicly. It would have showed some class by T.N.A. to have Bob candidly express his feelings toward his friend rather than to pursue Bob`s zany character that he exhibits today. Mr. Backlund and T.N.A., you get a two thumbs down from me!
