The Moondogs were a professional wrestling stable in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and in two Memphis promotions: the Continental Wrestling Association (CWA) and the United States Wrestling Association (USWA). Known for wrestling in blue jeans, sporting shaggy blond hair and beards and carrying animal bones around with them (which they chewed on and used as weapons), The Moondogs became notorious in the CWA and the USWA for their wild, brawl-filled bloodfests where weapons often came into play (essentially the hardcore style).

History

United States Wrestling Association

The Moondogs' success mostly came in the United States Wrestling Association (USWA), with numerous members winning the USWA tag team titles on several occasions during the late 1980s and early 1990s as well as Moondog Spot, Moondog Spike and Moondog Cujo's long running feud with Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Lawler and The Bruise Brothers during their stint in the USWA. Their feud with Jarrett and Lawler was later voted the 1993 PWI Feud of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

Clash of the Legends

Moondog Cujo appeared at the Clash of the Legends show in Memphis (headlined by Hulk Hogan vs. Paul Wight) on April 29, 2007, where he defeated The Barbarian.

Members

With Moondog Spike and Moondog Spot, Moondog Cujo became involved in a long running feud with Jeff Jarrett and Jerry "The King" Lawler in the United States Wrestling Association during the early 1990s. Their feud was later voted the 1993 PWI Feud of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Cujo, whose real name was Lanny Keane and who also wrestled in the WWF in the mid-1980s as Cousin Junior in the Hillbillies stable alongside Hillbilly Jim and Uncle Elmer, died of a heart attack in Jamestown, Kentucky on January 12, 2009 at age 48.
