A memorial statue for AWA legend The Crusher, long billed as the "Wrestler who made Milwaukee Famous" will be unveiled today on the corner of 11th and Milwaukee in South Milwaukee at 3 PM as part of a Crusherfest weekend.  Previous media reports in the area have stated the statue be shaped like a wrestling ring with a statue of The Crusher elevated within the ring.

Crusherfest will feature live wrestling, a polka band, appearances by wrestling legends and more.

Reggie “The Crusher” Lisowski passed away in 2005 at 79 years old.  He was billed as "The Wrestler That Made Milwaukee Famous" and was an extremely popular blue-collar brawling babyface for the AWA.   He was inducted into WCW's Hall of Fame in 1994 and was voted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2005.  He's certainly a likely candidate for future inclusion in the WWE Hall of Fame's Legacy Wing.
