Biography: Brian Yandrisovitz, better known as Brian Knobbs, is an American former professional wrestler, best known as one half of the tag team The Nasty Boys.
Brian Knobbs started his career in the American Wrestling Association as the masked Terrorist in 1985. In 1986, he formed a tag team called The Nasty Boys with Jerry Sags and wrestled in the Tennessee territory until they moved to Florida Championship Wrestling, where they won five Tag Team Titles from 1988 through 1990.
In 1990, they went to the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions which had been purchased by Ted Turner and would be renamed World Championship Wrestling before they left a few months later. They feuded with Rick and Scott Steiner over the U.S. Tag Team Titles but could not defeat them. In early 1991, they went to the World Wrestling Federation where they were managed by Jimmy Hart and won the World Tag Team Titles from The Hart Foundation before feuding with and losing the titles to the Road Warriors.
They left the WWF for WCW in 1993 and were quickly placed with manager Missy Hyatt, who led them to the World Tag Team Titles. She left them and they went on to feud with Harlem Heat, The Blue Bloods and the team of Dick Slater and Bunkhouse Buck.
In 1996, they were tricked by the nWo into thinking they were going to become members but were attacked as soon as they received their shirts. Sags had been injured previously and he had to retire due to this injury.
Knobbs became a singles wrestler after Sags retired and entered WCW's hardcore division. He feuded with Norman Smiley and Bam Bam Bigelow and won the title three times. Fit Finlay was briefly his manager as the "Hardcore Soldiers" with partner "The Dog".
He also was briefly in Jimmy Hart's "First Family".
Sags returned to wrestling in 2001 with Knobbs as The Nasty Boys to wrestle in the short-lived Xtreme Wrestling Federation and they both retired after it folded in 2002.
Offstage, Knobbs is a real-life friend and running buddy of wrestling icon Hulk Hogan. In 2005, Knobbs has a supporting role in the VH1 reality series Hogan Knows Best.
