Ted Herbert

Herbert had a good run through Quebec and the Maritimes and success in Japan during the mid 70's. In the Maritimes he would form a tag with Pierre 'Mad Dog' Lefebvre and at one time ran a wrestling school near Toronto in Brampton, ON. For reasons unknown he never made it to MLG and I have yet to see any mention at all in Ontario.

El Santos 1978

With the advent of internet message boards and the wealth of historical info available most of the 'secrets' of professional wrestling are now common knowledge. With Masked Wrestlers however, identities can still be a source of mystery, even years later.

El Santos and the tag team of El Santos I and II were a familiar sight in George Cannon's Superstars of Wrestling in the mid to late 70's. The team started with Terry Yorkston and Duncan McTavish under the white and black masks and there were others but believe this version working solo in 1978 may be Rocky Della Serra.
