Happy Birthday Magnum TA

June 11th was the 55th birthday of Terry (Magnum TA) Allen.  

The former star of the NWA (Jim Crockett promotions) was most famous for his "I Quit" match at Starrcade 85 with Tully Blanchard.  He then ventured into another legendary and lengthy feud with the "Russian Nightmare" Nikita Koloff for the United States Heavyweight Championship.

Sadly a terrible car accident ended his skyrocketing career in October of 1986.   He still remains a legend among fans everywhere and is often seen at reunion shows.
