Best masked wrestler that you ever saw in action?
« on: January 07, 2018, 09:01:58 pm »

IMO, it was The Spoiler. I used to see a lot of his matches on Georgia Champioship Wrestling in the 70's and 80's and I still re watch a lot of his matches on YouTube. He had great ring and physical skills and his ability to walk the ropes was 2nd to none. Yes, there were other great masked wrestlers out there but none as great as The Spoiler in my opinion.

Prince Puma was doing great work under the mask.



Pentagon Dark and King Cuerno are also entertaining.





Jushin Thunder Liger and Rey Mysterio are all-time greats.

Mr Wrestling (I or II??)  was a big deal in Georgia during the 70s and 80s and his turning on Magnum TA.  Before that Doctor X was a great villain in the 60s.  Don't forget when they kicked out Dusty Rhodes and the next week a masked guy who sounded just like and looked just like Dusty appeared on the scene   The Midnight Ryder

I enjoy talking about all various masked wrestlers BUT my question was, in your opinion, who was the best. Which masked wrestler, not as a brief gimmick, but which one actually was the best, his mask was his identity and he was a great wrestler as well.

If you go to Wiki and type in Doctor X wrestler it is hard to believe that very many masked men had a better career than him.  Also went by the name the Destroyer.  Many championships and wrestled around the world and was very popular in Japan.

Mil Mascaras helped found the lucha libre movement out of Mexico back in the 60s. He was a predecessor to the masked wrestlers we know of today.

I'm a total wrasslin' dork, man.  Sometimes I hate it, but I can't help it.

Apparently they were the Freedom Fighters managed by Dutch Mantel in Memphis at one point.

When I was a kid, the only wrestling I got to watch was out of Shreveport and Dallas. That was back in the day when you only got 3 channels if you lived in the country. I had no idea who Hulk Hogan was. Kerry Von Erich,Junk yard dog, " Cowboy " Bill Watts, Jake the snake and every now and then the nature boy.
 

As a side note, when I'm reading Delta's posts I picture Dick Murdoch!

The Golden Superhawk was a masked wrestler.  His submission move was to pin his opponent on the mat, then jump into the air and land with his knee in the guy's crotch.  We made a ring in a friend's back yard, but we made it a rule that no one was allowed to try that one.
