Douglas A. Baker (April 19, 1934), known by his ring name Ox Baker, is an American former professional wrestler and actor. He has appeared in several movies including playing the role of the Russian wrestler in Blood Circus and Escape from New York. Baker became well known for his finishing move the heart punch, which he used to call the "hurt punch". Coincidentally Alberto Torres and Ray Gunkel both died after matches with Baker. Both times the heart punch was blamed, but this was just storyline. In fact Torres died of a ruptured appendix and Gunkel of a heart attack. Baker also wrote a cookbook in which he tells stories of his wrestling colleagues and how they ate while on the road.
