Don't Call Me Fake
The Real Story of "Dr. D" David Schultz
by David Shultz, with John Cosper
Ask anyone who watched wrestling in the early 80s who the most dangerous man in wrestling was, and they will tell you it was Dr. D.
Trained by Herb Welch, the Tennessee native terrorized fans in Tennessee, Memphis, Florida, Calgary, Japan and Minnesota before being recruited into the WWF at the request of Hulk Hogan. Dr. D was a singles and tag team champion for multiple promotions, and he faced some of the most dangerous men in the business — Antonio Inoki, Abdullah the Butcher, Bruiser Brody, and Johnny Rodz — and yet, he is remembered to this day for taking down a very different opponent: ABC reporter John Stossel, who dared to utter the words, "I think this is fake." The Stossel incident was only one of many that led to the end of his wrestling career, but Dr. D soon turned babyface in real life, finding an even greater calling as a professional bounty hunter.
Working out of Connecticut, Dr. D traveled the world and brought back hundreds of "skips" who had fled from justice. Dr. D was unequaled in his second career as he was with the first. If he couldnít coax you into coming back of your own free will, he still possessed the skills taught by Herb Welch that could turn even the biggest thug into a crybaby.
Call him a wrestler. Call him a bounty hunter. Just donít call him fake!
Dr. D David Schultz is the real deal, a hero in the wrestling locker room who became an even greater hero in his post wrestling career, clearing the streets of dangerous men and women with his Southern charm and a shooter's grip.
