“In a world of make believe, legends, myths, and dreams BERT ASSIRATI, was every wrestler’s nightmare. Almost ignoring the sacred rules of “kayfabe”, when Bert put on a submission hold and his victim tapped out, Bert was in the habit of not releasing his opponent until he had added a few extra squeezes to impress his point. ”
