Born in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the legendary Bobo Brazil is often referred to as the "Jackie Robinson of Professional Wrestling" for successfully breaking down racial barriers in the industry. Brazil made his professional wrestling debut in 1951 and was originally slated to appear as "Boo Boo" Brazil but because of a printing error on the advertisement he became "Bobo" and the name stuck. Brazil soon clashed with The Sheik, a feud that would last for decades. In 1962, Brazil became the first African-American to capture the NWA World Heavyweight Title after defeating "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers. His famous finishing move was a head butt called the "Coco Butt." Brazil was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame in 1994.
