SED - Rocky Johnson


Rocky Johnson, now often referred to as 'The Rock's Dad' was himself quite an impressive wrestler in his day. He was a regular in Toronto in the late 60's and would return in 1980 under a mask as Sweet Ebony Diamond. 

Most of the fans knew it was Rocky under the mask and he actually did unmask in 1981 after winning the MA TV Title. Was hard to hide his style, incredibly agile and speedy in the ring, Rocky's brother Ricky is also a local favorite working on Wildman shows in the area.  Believe these photos were out of Griff Henderson's collection - thinking that may be Flair below ...or Austin Idol perhaps.
