 Professional Wrestling Online Museum - Ring Chronicle Hall of Fame Inductee - The Grand Wizard
It was his intellect, an almost "mad genius" aspect to his character, that allowed this frail man to become the WWWF's diabolical leader of champions, perhaps the most successful manager of his day, and an inspiration for future managers in wrestling.
Considering that the WWWF's management had traditionally preferred "good guy" champions during its (at that time) short history, the fact that Graham and The Wizard were so popular -- despite their "bad guy" personas -- was quite an accomplishment for a "heel" WWWF champion and manager in that era.
The loose alliance that the three maintained was one of the most successful "partnerships" of the 1970's, and weaved its way in and out of various WWWF storylines for years.
