Sylvester Ritter (December 13, 1952 – June 2, 1998) was an American professional wrestler best known for his work in Mid-South Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation as The Junkyard Dog (or JYD for short).
In the early 1980s Ritter moved to Mid-South Wrestling, where booker "Cowboy" Bill Watts gave him the name and gimmick Junkyard Dog, and would wear a long chain, attached to a dog collar, and white boots. He originally came to ring pushing a cart filled with junk called the "junk wagon" and lost most of his early matches before his character caught on and became one of the top faces in the company. While on top he feuded with some of the top heels in the company, including a now infamous angle with the Fabulous Freebirds where they (kayfabe) blinded him with hair cream. At the peak of the feud Ritter's wife (legit) gave birth to their first child, and since Ritter now couldn't see his new daughter it increased the heat on the Freebirds to the point where they needed police escorts in and out of arenas. The feud ended with (the still blind) Ritter and the Freebird "leader", Michael "P.S." Hayes wrestling in a steel cage match.
