Jason Powell’s(Pro Wrestling.Net) POV: Shaw was a top heel for the Calgary Stampede promotion. His mainstream characters were campy, but he was a strong heel on the Calgary tapes I watched back at the time. The Slam Wrestling story also noted that Shaw played pro softball for the Milwaukee Schlitz before he started his pro wrestling career.
