It's always a big deal when Monster Jam rolls into the Georgia Dome for monster truck racing, car-crushing freestyle and other giant-tired carnage. But when it returns this Saturday, this larger-than-life motorsports spectacle will be an even bigger deal for Grave Digger, one of the sport's originators celebrating its 30th anniversary.
An imposing physical presence, former Atlanta-area resident Chad Fortune has had a monstrously successful career in many different arenas. After transitioning from football to pro wrestling, working for now-defunct Atlanta-based World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment), he found success in an even more unlikely sport. It was through his work in the fantasy land of wrestling that he had the good fortune to enter the realm of monster trucks, first as a spokesman for WCW’s New World Order truck in 1999, then as the driver for WCW’s Nitro Machine the following year. These days, Fortune has taken on the “Man of Steel” persona as the driver of the Superman truck, remaining one of the sports top competitors. With Monster Jam coming to town Feb. 12, Fortune discusses his previous athletic endeavors and what it’s like being a real-life superhero.
"Watch out for that odd bedfellow"
You could wake up with fleas!
Lucy is a little busy right now:
"Am I asking to much to hope for something like this?" Kowloon is what you…
Watch out for that odd bedfellow, Libby.
No loss. It wasn't that great.
