Bob Backlund is an American professional wrestler with an in-ring career that spanned over 30 years. Over that time, he was a two-time WWF Champion. Backlund holds the record for the second longest reign as WWE Champion in history, ahead of Hulk Hogan's first reign and behind Bruno Sammartino's first. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.
Backlund was also an accomplished amateur wrestler, wrestling for the North Dakota State University Bison in the late 1960s to early 1970s. Backlund continues to work in the pro wrestling business in various capacities. In 2000, Backlund unsuccessfully ran for a Connecticut seat in Congress on a Republican ticket.
Backlund's autobiography, "The All-American Boy: Lessons and Stories on Life from Wrestling Legend Bob Backlund," was released on July 1, 2014. The 352-page story, contributed to by Robert H. Miller, includes interviews with Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, The Iron Sheik and Vince McMahon.
Backlund was a guest on MTV's "Singled Out," where he acted in sketches with hosts Jenny McCarthy and Chris Hardwick. The work caught the eye of director Keven Undergaro and producer Maria Menounos. He was subsequently cast to play the role of "Friar Chuck," alongside Menounos and John Waters, in the feature film comedy "In the Land of Merry Misfits." The film played at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, where Backlund appeared and signed autographs.
