Biography

St. Louis, Missouri, USA
The son of a professional wrestler (Warren Bockwinkel), it was only natural for Nick Bockwinkel to follow in his father's profession. Bockwinkel wrestled for several years in various regions, but gained his greatest fame in the now-defunct American Wrestling Association (AWA). He and tag-team partner Ray "The Crippler" Stevens were three time AWA Tag-Team Champions in the 1970s for Bobby "The Brain" Heenan's "Family." Tag-team wrestling wasn't Bockwinkel's only forte though, as he won the AWA Heavyweight Championship, by defeating Verne Gagne in 1975. Bockwinkel's first reign as champ lasted nearly five years before he lost to Gagne in 1980. Read more...
