Funny enough, my first exposure to Arion was on Cannon's old "Superstars of Wrestling" show (out of Montreal IIRC) back in the mid-70's. He was a good guy, and the main hero on TV every week along with Domenic DeNucci and Gino Brito. The Sheik was the big, scary heel of the area and Arion was one fo the few guys I thought could match up with him and take him down.


I was pretty young. I'm not big on Arion at all from a grown-up perspective. His match with Bruno is just awful, and that Backlund bout isn't much better.


As a kid = Thumbs up, as an adult = Thumbs down
