moondog rex

Here’s a photo of Moondog Rex chomping on a bone like you would expect a dog to do! What the hell is a “moondog” in the first place? I don’t know either, but I got a kick out of Rex and Spot from the few times I saw them wrestle in the WWF. Looking on the internet, I have discovered that there have been twenty-five different Moondogs in wrestling over the years! Can you imagine what would have happened if they all materialized at once in the same promotion? Why, I’m not sure that anyone would be able to handle the carnage that these crazy canines would have left behind! Rex is also remembered for wrestling as the original Smash in Demolition, which didn’t last for very long before Barry Darsow (Krusher Kruschev, Repo Man, etc.) replaced him. That is quite all right with me, as I prefer to believe that the Moondogs exist in their own alternate universe where every man has shaggy hair, scraggly beards, and frayed blue jeans while chomping on animal bones for fun!
