Does anyone recall Firpo?  He was a force in the WWWF at that time.  He had matches with Pedro and others.  Did anyone recall him in the AWA or NWA?

He came through the AWA a couple of times as I recall.  First time as a heel around 1968 (feuded with Dutch Savage and Bill Watts among others) and the second time around 1972 or so, only as a face.  Always entertaining, but much better as a heel in my opinion.

I am sure somebody who has actual facts and stuff can offer more detail.

the "Wild Bull From Pampas" (?) always fascinated me as he looked maniacal, especially with all the blood dripping from his wicked-long crazy hair (Apter mags) ala Brody...he was a monster challenger to Morales but never came back to face Bruno II or at least I never saw him... except these days on YouTube (16mm silents)....supposedly he was from Argentina and was the inspiration for Randy Savage's OHHH YEAHHH

He was in the AWA again as a babyface feuding with Baron Von Raschke in a battle of the claw holds. Also feuded with the Valiant Brothers. Very entertaining interview.

apparently he was a one-off MSG contender to Pedro...and that's it, no 60s challenges to Bruno either...he was in the WWWF for about six months in 1972 total...he beat the mid-card faces for 4-5 months previous, including Chief Jay in April... and here is his only shot at Morales..

WWWF @ New York City, NY - Madison Square Garden - May 22, 1972
Tony Cantellis defeated the Blue Demon via disqualification
Prof. Toru Tanaka defeated Manuel Soto
King Curtis defeated Smasher Sloan
Eddie Graham defeated Jimmy Valiant
Ernie Ladd defeated Rene Goulet
Chief Jay Strongbow defeated Cpt. Lou Albano
Chief Jay Strongbow & Sonny King defeated WWWF Tag Team Champions Baron Mikel Scicluna & King Curtis to win the titles in a Best 2 out of 3 falls match, 2-0
WWF World Champion Pedro Morales pinned Pampero Firpo at 15:21

He had a run in NWA San Francisco.

Up until a few years ago he worked in a post office locally.

Not too much from him in the WWWF. I'm sure there's a bunch of TV stuff missing but they seemed to use the same formula with Firpo and Ray Stevens in 1972. Bring them in for only the biggest shows and some title shots.

I seem to remember reading in some 'rasslin magazine that Firpo beat Sheik Ed Farhat for the NWA US title in Toronto or Montreal and gave him a real ass kicking in the process.  I am scant on recollection, but it seemed like Farhat had held that title for just shy of forever up to that time.  Am I remembering that right?

He held many titles, under different names-Ivan the Terrible, The Missing link, Pampero Firpo. See http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com for a more comprehensive listing. He was titleless in the AWA and WWWF.

Maybe it was reported in a magazine, but according to Wrestling Title Histories Firpo never held the US Title in Toronto or any title in Montreal. The Sheik held the Toronto version of the US Title(should have been called the Canadian or North American Title) 3 times. The longest reign was 2 years and four months. Thunderbolt Patterson ended that reign on November 19, 1976. The Sheik had 3 short reigns as the IWA-Montreal- Champion.

Firpo did defeat the Sheik for the Detroit version of the US Title on July 17, 1976, to end the Sheik's 9th reign, out of 11 total reigns, as champ. The Sheik had only been champ for two months. Three months later, Firpo dropped the title to Bulldog Don Kent. Firpo also held the US Title-Detroit-twice in 1972 both times defeating and subsequently, twice dropping the title to Bobo Brazil.

Firpo originally had a run in New York in 1960, main eventing several MSG shows in tag teams vs. Sammartino & Argentina Rocca. I don't think he came back until his 1972 run.
