31 Faces of Fear: Abdullah the Butcher

For the month of October, we are going to run through some of our favorite wrestlers that inspire fear in their competitors and fans alike.

There’s not a lot to really say about Abdullah the Butcher.  He is a hardcore legend.  His blading scars are so deep that Mick Foley claims he’s seen him store gambling chips in them.  His matches aren’t the best.  They are noteworthy for being excessively violent. I have a stomach ache just looking at some of the clips on YouTube.  There’s one with a coffee pot…I don’t recommend it.

Here’s another terrifying fact: Abdullah the butcher still occasionally wrestlers, even into his 70s, and he has Hepatitis C.  That fact alone might make him the scariest wrestler on this list.

Despite all that, the WWE did induct him into the Hall of Fame in 2011.
