#15 - The Missing Link (Dewey Robertson)


Professional wrestling had a lot of interesting characters that were bizarre. Dewey Robertson was behind one of the more unique gimmicks during the 1980s as The Missing Link. After more than 20 years of wrestling throughout North America, Robertson shaved his head, painted his face and debuted the character in 1984. It even led to a brief stint in WWE in 1985.

But drugs would become a problem in his life, including addictions to steroids, cocaine and amphetamines. In his autobiography published in 2006, Robertson admitted that his drug use eventually led to becoming homeless at one point. While spending years wrestling on the independent circuit, his health declined to a point where he lost a battle with cancer in 2007 at the age of 68.
