Do enough good things and you might wind up in a hall of fame someday. Or you can mix in a few bad deeds and wind up in a professional wrestling hall of fame.

Happy birthday to longtime Bixby resident "Cowboy" Bill Watts, who turns 81 on Tuesday.

The former University of Oklahoma football player and wrestler, was a 2009 WWE Hall of Fame inductee.

Watts learned early in his post-college life that he could land bigger paydays in pro wrestling than pro football. He also learned there was good money in being bad. He initially was cast as a good guy during east coast wrestling shows and was a tag-team partner of WWWF champion Bruno Sammartino.
