APRIL 29, 2004: Kyle the Limbless Wrestler

The Howard Stern Show might not be known for having many inspirational guests on the air, but Kyle Maynard was a true inspiration to everyone when he visited on this day in 2004. Kyle, a wrestler with no limbs, came on the show and talked about how he got into wrestling, how he uses his strength to knock his opponents over and pin them to the mat, and how he lost the first 40 matches he competed in but didn't give up the sport. Gary also told Howard how he wasn't sure how to shake Kyle's hand since he didn't have one.
