Sputnik Monroe and his brother Rocket were pro wrestlers way back in the day. Sputnik got his name in the early 60’s when he walked into an auditorium with his arm around one of his fans that happened to be a black teen. An angry woman called him the worst thing she could think of in that day – sputnik (ie: communist). White people boo’ed him but African Americans cheer for him.
