Sharkey wrestled from the early 1960s to 1972. He retired
and stayed out of wrestling for a number of years. Eventually
he was lured back into the business by some younger wrestlers
who asked if he would train them. These wrestlers - Jesse
Ventura and the Road Warriors - eventually went on to some
success. Sharkey still runs a wrestling school in the Twin
Cities and referees matches throughout the Upper Midwest.
