Wrestlers are some of the most fearless athletes around, but this might be enough to scare any opponent off the mat: "Now wrestling for Palm Springs (Calif.)
at 152 pounds … Lon Chaney ! …."
For those who are vintage horror movie buffs, Lon Chaney is one of the most revered names in the genre. This Lon Chaney – Lon Chaney III, to be exact – is a state contender in California. And, yes, he is the great-great-grandson of Lon Chaney, who starred as Frankenstein, and the great-grandson of Lon Chaney Jr., another horror movie legend.
"I just have to uphold the name, bring honor to the name," Chaney II told the Tucson Citizen
. "I want to go to state (the step after Masters) and it's a possibility that this is my last year of wrestling, so I want to go out with a bang."
