* BlindWithoutEm: Hansen had very poor eyesight, but couldn't wear his glasses in the ring and refused to wear contacts. His in-ring stiffness sometime came from the fact that he couldn't always see where he was going, and sometimes misjudged distances and hit his opponents much harder than he meant to.
