FREEBIRDS - FAQ
My Dad and I have a bet and I was hoping you could settle it for us. Nature Boy Buddy Rodgers was the first WWE world champion back in the 60's when it was the WWWF. My Dad says that Nature Boy was also a part of the Fabulous Freebirds, but I say he had long since retired. Who were the original Freebirds, and who is right?
You are right. The original Freebirds were Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy and Buddy Roberts. Apparently your dad got mixed up, between Buddy Rogers and Buddy Roberts. Hope that settles your bet.
