This does not even look like Arion, does it?  Must have been the younger days.  He looks bigger built in this pic.

I do not remember him being billed as a protege of Bruno's.  Anybody else?

Doesnt look like Arion to me either although I have seen him with short hair and I do vaguely recall hearing he was tied to Bruno early on.

Don't know what exists on Arion in terms of results but would love to see one day.

I always thought the back story to Arion's heel turn in the WWWF was that he was Bruno's protege of sorts and turned heel on Bruno....I remember from footage I have seen that Arion had some riotous crowds after him directly after his heel turn.

I remember Spiro during his initial mid 60's run. That photo does indeed look like him. Very muscular. Teamed with Antonio Pulgiese (Parisi), who was billed as Bruno's cousin.

Popular face wrestler.

Face turn in the 70's was great. "It's hard to be humble when your shear perfection" was one of the great lines of his. Had a "bounce" to his step as a heel.

"The bounce" was great. He "bounced" very arrogantly. I only saw him in the WWWF but he was a great star.

Good stuff, golgo.

I was hoping this would turn into a Spiros Arion result history

That's the young Arion in the photo. He was indeed affiliated with Bruno when he came in around 1967.
