“Hands Of Stone” Ronnie Garvin is a former AWA, NWA, and WWF superstar and wrestler. In 1987 Ronnie Garvin had the win of his career by beating the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair for the NWA title. Garvin lost it only two months later at Starrcade 87. The reason why he had such a short stint as champion was due to Crockett wanting Ric Flair to win the title at Starrcade and in order to win it he had to lose it first. So Ronnie was 42 at the time and decided that if he was going to win a major world title now is the time.
After winning the NWA World Title Garvin went on to feud with The Varsity Club with Kevin Sullivan. He turned heel shortly after that by hitting Dusty Rhodes and preventing him from winning Windham’s US Title. Shortly after that Garvin went on to the World Wrestling Federation. Garvin had several encounters with Greg Valentine that made up most of his time in the WWF. Shortly after he started wrestling on the independents.
