“Exotic” Adrian Street discusses how Randy Savage borrowed elements of his character, and more

Adrien Street

The Undisputed Wrestling Show (www.facebook.com/theundisputedwrestlingshow) had the pleasure of talking to “Exotic” Adrian Street recently. Mr. Street discussed his start in pro wrestling in the United Kingdom, how he developed his effeminate character, Randy Savage borrowing elements of his character, what he is doing today at the age of 73, Karl Gotch’s training for pro wrestling, and many other topics.

Adrian Street on Billy Robinson: “The first time I ever met Billy Robinson, he was the secretary of a wrestling alliance (union) he said ‘Are you in the union?’ and I said ‘No, I’ve never even heard of it.’ he said ‘You need to be, I’ll sign you up right now.’ I’ve still got that little pink pamphlet, I signed it and Billy signed it. That was in 1961. I’ve been offered all kind of money for it by collectors, but I think I’d like to keep it for myself.”

  1. I was a student of adrians, so I aknowledge I
    May be a little partial. But that being said Adrian has been and remains to be used as valuable source material for ring psychology, and character development. He is a trendsetter and one of our previous few living legends, and an embodiment of wrestling history and a living connection to by gone eras. Though he will no doubt outlive most of us, he should be acknowledge asap for all that he has contributed to the art.
