Jack Brisco was inducted into the NWA Hall of Fame back in 2010.  Brisco was a two time NWA Worlds Champion.  Brisco’s victories came at the expense of two icons in the sport, Giant Baba and Harley Race.  Brisco had defeated Harley Race in Houston Texas and would hold the title for 500 days before losing to Giant Baba in Kagoshima Japan, winning it a few days later in Japan.  Nearly a year later, Brisco’s last reign as champion would come to an end when Terry Funk would win the title in Tampa Florida. Brisco held titles through the NWA, from Georgia Championship Wrestling, to the Mid-Atlantic, from the Gulf Coast, to Mid America.  Brisco was also honored in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008 and winner of the Lou Thesz Award in the Cauliflower Alley Club in 2005.  Thanks to Debra Taylor for allowing us to use this photo.
