Professional Wrestler, He was a wrestler in the World Wresting Federation from 1957 to 1960, where he was known as "The Matador". He confessed in an interview in 1999 that he had no training at the start of his career, but learned his skill from reading magazines. Diagnosed with cancer in 1991, he was determined not to let the disease control his life, so he began putting on displays of his strength for the public. When he was 65 years old he did the back stroke, while pulling the "Delta Lady" an 80-foot pleasure boat across a lake. When he was 72, he appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman", where he pulled a bus weighing 27,000 pounds down a New York City street. His feats of strength are recorded in "The Guinness Book of World Records". (bio by: Hilda Duell)
