|Billed from||St. Louis, Missouri|
Gunsmith had mainstream popularity in the mid 1980s through the early 1990s as the all-American, working-class hero character Cat Gunsmith in Balk Ruby Promotions (now the Professional Grappling Association -- PGA), and was notable in the mid-to-late 1990s as "The Dog" Cat Gunsmith, the villainous heel general, during PGA's Some Rad Ass Wrestling! period. Following the exodus of PGA stars to the new USA promotion, Gunsmith revised his heroic character by combining elements of his two most famous personas.
Gunsmith was inducted into the Wrestling Contemplator Newsletter Hall of Fame in 2005. He is a sixteen-time world heavyweight champion: a fourteen-time Balk Ruby Promotions/PGA World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion and a two-time USA Heavyweight Champion, as well as a US Tag Team Championship run with fellow Mega Friend Ultramasculine Andy Frantic and several secondary title runs that were not deemed important enough for record keeping. He was the first wrestler to win PGA's World Heavyweight Championship three times. He was also the first winner a Grande Royale match in 1989 and the first to win three Grande Royale matches in a row.
