The Story of this Invention: As a teacher’s aide in 1989, Rick was thumb wrestling a 1st grader during recess. He’d been watching t.v. the night before and had caught a glimpse of bigtime, pro wrestling while flipping channels. Rick made a connection: thumb wrestling + pro wrestling = Pro Thumb Wrestling. A toy was born. Rick made 8,000 wooden Pro Thumb Wrestling toys by hand that year, helping to pay his way through graduate teacher’s college. He was awarded his first United States Patent for Pro Thumb Wrestling in 1991.
