 He picked opponents he knew were losers from the history books, then got upset and surprised if they won.

That was a perfect page starting post.  No context, and super far out.

I always thought his Monsther/Monster/However Pena tried to spell it that week gimmick in AAA was super fun.

I spent a day with Rey Buccanero in September. He was extremely kind. Between Shocker, Caristico, and Buccanero, Rey spoke the littlest English but he did something I will never forget. I drove them to the airport to pick up Caristico (original sin cara) and since Rey knew what he looked like without the mask and could speak spanish he was to run in and get him. My car wasn't even parked when Buccanero jumps out of the back seat and runs full steam into the airport. How he didn't get detained or questioned I will never know but Shocker looked at me with the straightest face and said "this happens all the time"

AKA Tomas Marin, WWWF undercard guy. Somehow seeing him live 40+ years ago sticks in my mind.

I think my first memory of The Ax is saving Curt from the Road Warriors when his head caught in the ropes.

Still one of the hottest crowds I've ever seen. Talk about near-riot!
