Silver Streak (unmasked as Vic Christy by Pat Fraley as Red Shadow) … NOTE: I believe Leo Numa and Pat Fraley took turns under the Red Shadow’s hood during the masked man’s lengthy domination of Pacific Northwest rings from 1936 to 1938 … When Numa returned early in ’38, after being absent for some months, he was said to be the “original? Red Shadow – although he wore a black & white hood, rather than the scarlet one he used during the previous main-event reign.

Masked Marvel (unmasked as Frank Sexton by Jack Washburn) … NOTE: It was interesting to see different Masked Marvels on the rival promotions. Ted “King Kong? Cox started his reign in Ontario during 1938. In the case of Frank Sexton, it may be one of the few times he wrestled as a heel. In 1940 he wore a mask around San Francisco.

Only thing I can add is:  August 22, 1970, Milwaukee, WI, Dr. X unmasked by Blackjack Lanza w/Bobby Heenan as Dick Beyer but the name Bruce Marshall is used in local newpapers.  I know this particular unmasking happened several times around the horn by either Lanza or Paul Diamond.

Very impressive research. Thank you.

I'm sorry I can't be of any help, but I just wanted to say that you are very impressive with your research, SonofCountRossi! This post, and the one about wrestling firsts are both extremely fascinating, and informative.

I, also, wanted to say that my favorite masked identity has to be "the masked boom boom". You just gotta love a moniker like that. :wink:

The New Jersey Zebra Kid in 1951, working for Pfefer, was probably Len Montana.

Tony Olivos also unmasked the Sandow ZK in Little Rock in 1951, as he did in Joplin.

Just wonderful research. Much appreciated.

A correction: Super Destroyer did not unmask the Might Canadian in Amarillo. Kiniski unmasked himself in a TV interview.

Also, on the Manny Fernandez question: I don't know the right date, but 1977 is too early, as he was still a couple of years away from debuting at that point.

>(1970 INFO SEEK) … Who unmasked Tom Jones as The Gladiator (and where?) in Amarillo TX? … Was Gordon Nelson unmasked as Mr. Wrestling in Amarillo TX? <

I remember in the early '70s the announcers openly referred to Mr Wrestling as Gordon Nelson. Sometimes he would simply wrestle as Nelson, making no secret of his alter ego. This suggests to me that he had been unmasked at some earlier point, but kept the masked gimmick. In one match, he took off his mask and put it on Karl Krupp backwards, then beat the blinded Krupp senseless.

SonOfACountRossi,  since you are NEW to the board, let me take this grand opportunity, on behalf of the staff, management and other patrons, to welcome you, with open arms, to the wonderful (and fun) kayfabe memories channel. You might consider some excellent publications on the market concerning the history of professional wrestling. We have an excellent, informed MOD staff here who will answer any questions, no matter how trite, that you may have. Welcome aboard, rookie. You stand the drinks. First round's on you.

P.S. - The WAWLI papers over on www.wrestlingclassics.com/wawli are an excellent source of reference material. I have actual hard copies of the aformentioned that I will sell for a reasonable price.
