The 4th one is Yoshihiro Yamazaki, but he never wrestled under his real name or any other name that I know of.  He was trained by Sayama, who decided to give him the gimmick before he ever debuted.

Many Super Destroyers, besides the ones you listed:

Art Neilson/Art Nelson had a notable two year run, 1976-1978, in the Amarillo region.

Nikolai Volkoff had a brief as a Super Destroyer in the WWWF in 1978.

A few from Los Angeles:

Dick Beyer - The Sensational Intelligent Destroyer
Gene LeBell - The Hangman  (also Neil Guay per some sources)
Bossman - Karl Lauer
El Medico - Apollo Jalisco
The Hood - Johnny Mantell, with a switch angle pulled with Ron Starr
The Monster - Tony Rodriguez
The Mummy - Benji Rodriguez (afaik, same guy who did it in Central States early 70s)
Mil Mascaras - Aaron Rodriguez
The Convict - Stan Frazier
Los Medicos - your guess is as good as mine, nobody agrees on this.   Rotating guys, maybe? A guy  name Reuben Rodriguez claims to have been a 'Medic'.
Pantera Negra - Miguel Huerta, and, best as I can tell, at least two of his brothers
Mr. Wrestling - Tim Woods




Setting aside the Luchadores and minis, obviously, but my ambition only goes so far.......

Ken Wayne as Tiger Mask in Kansas City. He then took the mask to the short lived Chattanooga territory in 1983 as Stray Cat (the band was quite popular at the time).

Someone, I believe Kerry Brown, worked as Super Destroyer on and off in Kansas City and St. Louis in the late 1970s to mid 1980s. It gets confusing looking at results since Scott Irwin spent some time there as Super Destroyer as well.

From what I recall, the WWF had four different lots of Executioners - the ones who won the tag titles, Buddy Rose's Wrestlemania cameo, Terry Gordy, and the jobber team of Dwayne Gill/Barry Hardy.

Suicide in TNA seems to be a rotating gig, Daniels, Kazarian, and whoever they have now.  Presumably Dog Catchers in USWA ditto.

Talking of Daniels, was he a Conquistador for the skits with Team EC?  Although that's more a gimmick as nobody expected them to be the same as the 1980s Conquistadors.

Donn Lewin was a (masked) Executioner n the WWWF, mostly western Pennsylvania & western New York from 1974-1976, and in the Pittsburgh region before that.

Ron Shaw also worked as an Executioner in the WWF in the early 80's.

Jardine formed several masked Spoiler teams, his partners were:

Smasher Sloan in 1968 in Big Time Wrestling Dallas
Buddy Wolfe in 1971 in the Louisiana/Oklahoma region
Bobby Duncum & Killer Karl Kox in 1978 in Florida

They were several other Spolier teams most notably Lorenzo Parente & Joaquin "Joey" Correa(El Olympico) in 1969 & 1970 in Mid-America.

Other (masked) Spolier teams include the following;

Jim Dalton & Randy Colley/Culley
Curtis Smith & Mike McManus
Doug Gilbert(Linday/Lynzy) & Butcher Vachon

Other solo Spoilers include Vince Montana who was a pre-Jardine Spoiler & Bobby Harmon

G'day All,

To add to freebirdsforever2001's list, in Australia in 1974 Pat Barrett used the Mr Wrestling gimmick and George Barnes worked as the Original Mr Wrestling.

Bobby Shane was the booker at the time and in several matches he wore the Original Mr Wrestling mask of his partner and protégé George Barnes.

Cheers!

The "original" Interns were Bill Bowman & Joe Turner in the Gulf Coast region in
1968. They were managed by Dr. Jerry Graham.

The next Interns were Billy Garrett & Jim Starr in the Mid-America territory-Nick Gulas, promoter- from 1970-1971.

The next, and longest lasting version of the Interns were Billy Garrett & Tom Andrews. They were together from 1971-1978. They competed in the Mid-America region 1971-late 1972. San Francisco area late 1972-1973. Mid-America 1973-1974. Kansas city area 1974-1975. Mid-America 1975-1977. Memphis 1977-1978.

No one wants to say, because then someone will complain that nobody labeled the reveal in advance as a Spoiler.

I guess it's Stanke, but I was convinced that it was Frank Morrell when I first saw footage of the SWCW Spoiler, and that was before I knew that Morrell was a Spoiler in Memphis. I just knew him as the Angel. When I learned that he did it in memphis, I just assumed I'd been right about SWCW.

Very briefly, Bill Eadie & Kelly Kiniski in Mid -South. I asked about the second Superstar on OSW; Dusty Wolfe swore he was Scott Irwin, but he didn't really look like Irwin and there are booking conflicts with the AWA. I've since learned that it's Kelly Kiniski, who does pass both the eye test and the booking cross references. Meltzer reported it as Kiniski at the time, but he thought the Nightmare was Bob Sweetan for awhile, too.

In Poffo's ICW:

 

"The Best"
originally Bob Orton Jr., then others in the bodysuit to demonstrate it was someone other than Orton in storyline.  After Orton left, others may have continued the role just to give the roster depth (Mr E Man Poffo could likely confirm)

later Mr. Saito to begin his Larry Zbyszko feud

Guy Mitchell was the Masked Strangler for Bruiser in Indianapolis. After he unmasked and left the territory, a wrestler known as the new Strangler appeared. I think that was Bobby Vann.

There were also two original Mr. Wrestlings and an original Grappler in Florida during 1971. I think Dale Lewis was the original Grappler. My memory is telling me Angelo Poffo and Jose "Sabu Singh" Gonzales were the original Mr. Wrestlings.

There were a Masked Blue Demons tag team in Florida as well. No clue as to their identities.

There were also two original Mr. Wrestlings and an original Grappler in Florida during 1971. I think Dale Lewis was the original Grappler. My memory is telling me Angelo Poffo and Jose "Sabu Singh" Gonzales were the original Mr. Wrestlings.


Claw,
Bobby Vann was one of the New Stranglers. I saw him in Hammond with the gimmick. Bruiser's son Karl also was a New Strangler in the WWA before he became Leroy Redbone.

Reading this makes me wonder - who was the most prominent masked wrestler whose identity remains secret?  If there are literally none, then at least which one has the most obscure alter ego?

Wondering if it's a luchador.  But their life histories seem to be pretty well known, even someone like El Santo.

Dick Beyer was never unmasked as The Destroyer and, as IWC legend has it, he was ticked off at Steve Yohe for revealing that Beyer was The Sensational Intelligent Destroyer because it somehow tarnished Beyer's legend in Japan.
