I don't have any results, but his career in the WWA must have spanned a heck of a lot of years.  I was surprised to find out just recently that he was still wrestling in the early 80's.  I remember him from my earliest days of watching TV in the mid 60's.  I'd be interested to hear more about him and his career.  I wonder if he ever made it past enhancement status?  Is he still alive? :?:

He died a few years ago.
He was a mid carder and occassionally in  a semi main or main event in Pittsburgh or surrounding towns in the early 1970's.  He worked a bit in Japan and not sure how he did there.
