Watching them from 1983 on the Network - then googled it. All the Vonerichs are in the early to mid-20s; Hayes and Gordy are in the same bracket. Good grief Gordy was headlining Georgia in his late teens/early twenties.

Not sure when we have ever seen anything like this again.

Here's Terry Mecca (aka Gordy) at 14 taking lessons from Ernie Ladd. A real prodigy. And I agree-- it'll be a rare sight for this to happen again.

Could you imagine a 14 year old in WWE or Impact today?

Gordy and Hayes have an amazing story. Adding veteran Buddy Roberts was sheer genius and he fit right in both in and out of the ring. Bill Watts' idea IIRC.
