Knee replacements give Leo Burke renewed energy
By BILLY POWERS - Calgary Sun


Fans of the late Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling will be pleased to know the popular Leo Burke is back on his feet again.

Last year Burke had operations to replace both knees and says both were successful.

He recently went out and purchased a mobile coffee and sandwich shop which has him working up to six hours a day during the week.

On weekends, he can still be found working the bar at the Cecil Hotel.

"Vince McMahon heard I had my knees done and called to see if I wanted to go back to training and developing wrestlers for him," said Burke.

"I told him that was a long way behind me."

Burke has worked with several star wrestlers in the past, including Edge, Test and Mark Henry.
