The Novas, "The Crusher"

Reggie Lisowski (1926-2005) was an American Professional Wrestler from Milwaukee, WI as The Crusher. He is best known for his work in the Midwest, particularly for the AWA, from the 1950s until he retired in the 1980s. He is especially known for his years of teaming with Dick The Bruiser. He competed for various National Wrestling Alliance territories, for All Japan Pro Wrestling, for Stampede, and even for WWE as "Crusher Machine." He retired in 1988. Among his in-ring achievements, he was a 3x AWA World Heavyweight Champion, a 9x AWA World Tag Team Champion and a 1x NWA International Tag Team Champion. He was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame in 1996.

Not to be confused with Jerry "The Crusher" Blackwell nor with the villain in the Bugs Bunny short Bunny Hugged.
