We're back with a special Black History Month edition of All the WrestleManias! On this Popcorn Match episode we're talking about Black representation in the WWE and WrestleMania, and the history of Black wrestlers going back to the very beginnings of the business. We learned about Viro Small, who took "go-away heat" to a whole new level by getting shot in the neck, Reginald Siki, who earned the title of first "World Colored Heavyweight Champion," and Houston Harris, who gave up a perfectly awesome wrestling name to become the legendary Bobo Brazil and wrestled for 40 years. We hope you enjoy -- send us your comments at @wrestlemaniapod on Twitter, or wrestlemaniablog@gmail.com!
