The Destroyer Dick Beyer on his life as an international wrestling sensation

"The Destroyer" Dick Beyer (1930-2019) was one of the greatest masked wrestlers of all time. Known as "Doctor X" and the "Intelligent Sensational Destroyer," Beyer achieved mega-star status in Japan as a widely recognized pop culture icon. He received one of that nation's highest honors, the Order of the Rising Sun, in 2017.


Back in 2014, at the age of 84, Beyer sat down with IPWHF President Seth Turner to talk about his remarkable life and career.
