Visit Da Crusher Statue at 1101 Milwaukee Avenue.
Reggie "Da Crusher" Lisowski wrestled professionally at the highest level for over 40 years and was known worldwide as “The Man That Made Milwaukee Famous.” He was a three time AWA Heavyweight Champion, a five time AWA tag team champion with Dick the Bruiser, a member of the WCW Hall of Fame, and a World War II Army Veteran.
Da Crusher symbolizes the embodiment of the blue collar, hard working history of the people of South Milwaukee and a monument honoring his memory is a proud landmark for the people of South Milwaukee. He was also a lifelong resident of South Milwaukee.
Starting in 2019, an annual festival known as Crusherfest has been held in South Milwaukee.
