Burton Barf

There is bit much to say about Burton Barf as he did not last long in wrestling. Few people will even remember him as he did not wrestle, manage, referee or promote. His distinction, brief as it was, was that of ring announcer.

The name itself was a spin off with a punk rocker twist, derived from an unpopular Arizona politician by the name of Burton Barr.

The name should have made him more endearing within wrestling cycles than it did.

Sadly, he did not give himself time to catch on, for when he found out how abysmal pay could be at the Indy levels, he returned to his position of radio disc jockey under his own name in short order.

Thus came and went Burton Barf.
