Why the Sandman is a wrestling legend
The Sandman is a legend and living proof that you don't need to be a talented wrestler to be great. The Sandman was so iconic because he was a larger than life character. While the Sandman was a terrible wrestler, he got over because of his character. He was himself 24/7 and the fans could relate to him. He was very charismatic and got his character across very well by connecting with the fans. He was the original Stone Cold Steve Austin before the Attitude Era and an "American barbarian." Whenever he'd come out, he would pour beer in the mouths of consenting fans and made hardcore wrestling popular by using various weapons on his opponents. He made his hardcore matches unique and special for the fans.
For those reasons, the Sandman will always be remembered and cherished by hardcore fans.
