The Amazing Journey of Johnny Powers
For a blue-collar kid from the steel town of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, it can be stated with relative certainty that Johnny Powers did pretty well for himself. Powers spent 20 years in the wrestling profession, and during that time achieved an amazing degree of success that would carry over to other business ventures. A risk-taking, forward-thinking promoter at heart, Powers was a darling of the pro wrestling community during the ?60s and ?70s. With good looks, a 6-4, 260-pound athletic body, and a sharp mind for the business, the wrestler nicknamed the ?Golden Adonis? became a major star by his mid-20s.
