aka James Janos When a professional wrestler bills himself as "The Body," that's usually a good sign that his actual wrestling skills aren't as impressive as his ability to tolerate massive doses of steroids.

When a politician bills himself as a former professional wrestler, well, that's a good sign the Apocalypse is at hand.
James Janos was born in Minnesota in 1951. On graduating high school, Janos joined the Navy in 1969 and became a SEAL, serving for six years, including a tour in Vietnam.
By his own admission, the future governor was never fired upon in combat. Janos (soon to be Ventura) has never publicly discussed his Vietnam career in much detail, leading many to assume that either he never served in Vietnam, never served as a SEAL, or (less frequently) that he was involved in some kind of atrocity. Although his critics have tried to make an issue of his Vietnam career (or an alleged lack thereof), none of the various claims have ever stuck.
After Vietnam (or whatever), Janos returned to the U.S., where after a brief flirtation with life in a motorcycle gang, he settled down for heady cocktail of college, football and apple pie, the whole American works.
When pro wrestling promoters spotted him working out at the local gym, college went out the window, along with the name James Janos.

Jim Janos , now known to the rest of the world as Jesse ``The Body'' Ventura , overcame the odds , the pundits and two better-financed major party opponents to be elected governor.

...
``I always thought that if Jim ever ran for office , he'd have to answer to his father and do a good job.
...
The man who will be Minnesota's 37th governor was born James George Janos on July 15 , 1951 , in Minneapolis , and he grew up on the city's south side.His father worked for the Minneapolis street department , and his mother was a nurse.
He was a rough-and-tumble lad , and he has friends who say that as early as the second or third grade he expressed a desire to one day be a professional wrestler.
He attended Roosevelt High School , where he was on the swim team.The war in Vietnam was raging , and his older brother , Jan , had joined the Navy and passed the training for the SEALs - short for Sea , Air and Land , the Navy's special operations unit.
``His brother came home from Hell Week and it was getting toward my senior year.I was looking at college , but with Vietnam going on , I started looking at joining the service , '' recalls Nelson , who is now a sergeant in the Indian River County Sheriff's Department in Vero Beach , Fla.
...
There was a famous radio personality in Manila , Johnny de , and Jim would always tell these people that he was Johnny de , and they would laugh and chuckle.''.
...
I think he's fairly approachable to the public , but I think there's a private side to Jim that he doesn't share with everybody.''.
