Knobbs + Sags=Nasty Boys

A while ago, I wrote about meeting Brian Knobbs at the ill-fated Kokomo (IN) show. Knobbs is quite a character. Still, I walked away feeling I was missing something. Last October, I realized what I had missed. I missed Jerry Sags, Brian Knobbs' partner in the Nasty Boys.
The Nasty Boys have been a highly successful tag team in professional wrestling for almost 25 years. Actually, Sags and Knobbs have been together since childhood.
They are a rarity in wrestling, as they have never turned on each other in the ring. They have gone the singles route at times, but never as a result of a turn against the other.
I would have loved to get an interview with them, but merely getting them together for a photo was a chore. These guys were having a lot of fun, goofing with everyone. It made meeting them a bit of a challenge, but it made watching them a whole lot of fun.
