This timeframe is a weak point for me, but I'm going to go with Tony Marino.

Without looking it up, you got me.

I don't even remember Bruno ever being tag team champ.

After looking it up, I believe you are correct, Sir.

Yeah, when I read about his gimmick , the first thing I thought of was whether he got sued.

I love wrestling history. Spending my formative years in Western PA, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the old-timers from the days of Studio Wrestling. Many of those guys like DeNucci, DeFazio, Bruno, Scicluna, etc. still lived in the area.

For years, I saw Charles Martoni and "Hurricane" Johnny Hunt on a very frequent basis.

Martoni had gone on to accomplish a number of notable endeavors, most recently serving as President of a community college. DeFazio is a county councilman and United Steelworkers of America union director. Baron Scicluna passed away not long ago. A friend of mine went to school with his kid.

Supposedly, that is why he spelled it "Battman" with an extra "t."

Today, he would have been used for every penny and beyond.
