This is the 22nd in a series of drawings dedicated to my childhood heroes, the WWE Fallen Superstars. Raymond "Hercules" Fernandez was an 80s childhood staple for me in the WWF. Hercules was the perfect name for him because he had the physique and strength of a Greek God. The closest Hercules ever got to WWF gold was a title shot against Hulk Hogan on Saturday Night's Main Event in 1986. Although he was able to put the 300 lb Hogan in his torture rack, he came up short in the biggest match of his wrestling career. I will remember his impressive strength and his amazing ability to be a great heel.

I heard Jim Cornette tell a story about Hercules: Herc was doing a run-in during a match between Barry Darsow and Butch Reed. Suddenly, a fan jumped the rail and tried to keep Hercules from hurting the babyface. After the cops pulled the fan back, after the match, Darsow basically told him, "I'd hit you, but I'll never hit you as hard as he's going to," referring to the now incensed Hercules. As the fan tried to apologize, Herc open-hand slapped the guy, sending him skidding into a wall, out cold. Corny and the Midnight Express went out to wrestle, and when they came back, the guy was still K.O.'d. Jim asked Herc, "If you were that mad, why'd you just slap him?" And Hercules replied, "Oh, Jimmy, if ya hit someone with your fist, ya could hurt'em."

I really like what you've done with WWE Super Stars. I used to watch wrestling back in the 80s when I was a child and remember each of these fallen characters, no exceptions. Keep up the great job and thanks for the memories! ;)
