Biography/Additional Facts

Charles "Chick" Donovan is a now retired professional wrestler and is arguably the most popular professional wrestler in the southeast United States to never make it to the WWF, although he did work for a short time with WCW.

Making his professional debut in 1977, he carried on notable feuds with fellow wrestling legends Jerry "The King" Lawler and Tommy Rich. He wrestled at the peak of his career in the AWA and the NWA.

In 1981, he became one of the original members of the now famous The First Family managed by Jimmy Hart.

Along with Ric Flair, he made the figure-four leglock (his finisher) one of the most famous and feared submission moves in professional wrestling.

His last official match was on February 3, 2006 in Birmingham, AL against Adrian Street.

On August 11, 2007, Donovan made a return to in-ring action with Georgia Wrestling Promotions, appearing at a show in Waleska, GA, pinning Chris Lightning.

Tommy Rich & Scotty Blaze & Hawkins beat Chick Donovan & Billy Love & Valentine in Villa Rica Georgia in Nov. 2007.
