"How a Typo Created Wrestler Bobo Brazil."

Originally presented at Ten Bell Salute.

Black History Month is being celebrated in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom and the WWE Network is honoring the contributions of black (I don’t use the term African-American because not all black wrestlers were from the United States) athletes from many promotions as well as many historical eras. While professional wrestling has not shied away from running racist angles, wise promoters have looked past a person’s skin color in order to make money with wrestlers, regardless of race. Join me as I look at some of wrestling's premier black athletes, with today's wrestler being Bobo Brazil.
