History: Celebrating the impact of the Junkyard Dog [Videos]

Born Sylvester Ritter in North Carolina, the man who would be known as many different ring names saw his biggest success as the Junkyard Dog (or JYD for short) in the NWA and WWF. Throughout much of the 1980s, JYD was one of the most popular wrestlers in the industry. The uniqueness and raspy voice of JYD received huge fan support and his interviews with the likes of "Mean" Gene Okerlund are pure 1980s pro wrestling entertainment.
