This is the 277th installment of the ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. A group of stories that delves into the darker, underbelly of pro wrestling. Many of the stories involve such subjects as sex, drugs, greed and in some cases even murder! As with every single story in the Sin series, I do not condone or condemn the alleged participants. We simply retell their stories by researching interviews, newspapers, magazines and various other sources of media.
Ain’t That A Mitch!
Lars Sullivan has had a rocky start to his WWE career. In 2019, a bunch of old homophobic and sexist posts from message boards came to light. Even though they occurred before signing with WWE, Lars apologized for the remarks and was sent to sensitivity training by WWE management. Months later, it was revealed that Lars had actually been involved in some adult films before his wrestling career took off.
The films involved him with another man engaging in homosexual activities. He used the name ‘Mitch Bennett’ during his brief porn career. When these new revelations came out, Sullivan deleted his Twitter account and made his Instagram page private. It has also been reported that Lars hasn’t communicated with anybody including WWE management after the movies were revealed.
Centerfold of Attention
For three years, Miki Garcia was ‘Miss Wrestling’ for Roy Shire’s Big Time Wrestling promotion based in San Francisco, California. She was used as a ring girl who took wrestlers attire once they climbed in the ring, held up wrestlers cards etc. There were rumors that she had an affair with both Roy Shire and play by play announcer Hank Renner.
After her time with wrestling, Miki posed for Playboy magazine and became Playboy Playmate of the month for January of 1973. Miki wound up working for Hugh Hefner’s magazine for over 10 years after her nude spread.
Bill of Frights
Klondike Bill was a wrestler who was trained by Stu Hart and competed for several territories from the 1960’s through the 1970’s. While Klondike had a pretty successful career in the ring, he was also known for being one of the biggest sexual deviants in pro wrestling history. Tony Schiavone, Tony Atlas and Jim Cornette have all talked at great length about Klondike’s sexual fetishes and exploits.
He loved to chew on used women’s panties and sometimes wore them on his head while having sex. He is also known for using kielbasa sausages on women. Cornette said that Klondike had a lust for hotel maids and often seduced them into having sex with him. Cornette added that Bill once lied under a glass table and watched as a woman peed on top of the glass while Klondike masturbated.
In June of 1994, pro wrestler Dewey Robertson aka ‘The Missing Link,’ attempted suicide when he overdosed an anti-depressant medication. Robertson had been battling bi polar depression and was often self medicating with marijuana and alcohol. His mental pain became too much to live with and took an entire bottle of anti-depressant medication. Fortunately, he was discovered in time and rushed to a nearby hospital and survived the attempt.
