    He ended up wrestling in Britain and europe under his real name, but after that, I don't know.

    I used to really like Tatanka. Looking back he was average, but I liked him. It was probably his character always got me hooked into the matches. Back then I used to like watching Cowboy and Indian films.

    Maybe he's running a casino?

    he wasnt so bad a wrestler,but having him have such a winning streak to get him over and going on about it ad nauseaum became thoroughly annoying.

    Tatanka (Buffalo) got really fat during his heel run with the WWF, what that has to do with anything, I don't know. Just my opinion I guess....

    Who was it that first beat him? I thought it was Yokozuna, but have a sneaky feeling it was Ludvig Borga.

    Tatanka's heel turn, was done very well. I really didnt see that coming (bearing in mind I was a mark back then) I was convinced it was Luger who had 'sold out'. Well done Vince.

    Ah ha! Yes, Tony 'Ludvig Borga' Halme. I remember seeing him on Eurosport, I think it was IWGP anyhoot, what I saw (I think) was shot before his stint in the WWF. But I'm sure he returned to Japan after he left the U.S.

    EDIT: It was NJPW, not IWGP

    This is the latest news I can find on him.
    I never knew Borga became a shooter.

    He's now a film and T.V. star.
    He played Roman in Die Hard 3
    Also Komentaja in 'The Book of Faith (2003)

    And more recently severel, I'm guessing Finish T.V. shows. But it's credited as 'played himself'

    And there's more. He is NOW trying to get into parliament as a politician.

    Same thing can be said about the way the WWE has Muhammed Hassan still undefeated huh? Yep. The wrestler formally known as"War Eagle" Chris Chavis was a pretty good wrestler to me.Despite the weird ass hairdo, Tatanka was pretty solid.

    IMO he was one of those guys that deserved alot more than he got from the WWE. I mean how can a guy have a record like that for so long and never hold a title while he was there?

    The WWE has a very weird way of showing their grattitude towards some people over the years. They really do.

    Tatanka wrestled in my home town with Hammerlock a few years back. I never bothered going to see him but theres a signed picture in an American Diner in town.

    Wasn't he put out of the '93 Survivor Series by a Ludvig Borga chairshot across the back. Goes to show how "la-de-dah" the WWF was back then whe a chairshot to the back is considered career threatening.

    Ludvig Borga sucked!

    Nono, Yoko beat him first, not Ludvig. Ludvig aided in the victory when he held Tatanks down while Yoko Banzai dropped his ribs while he was laying sideways.

    Pretty sure that was his first loss.

    Also, I liked his song.
