There was a rumor during the early days of wrestling websites that EMP was a road agent for the WWF in the mid 80s, but IIRC Dusty Wolfe or someone else at the OSW board said he wasn't. But it was the mid 80s WWF, who knows.

Even though well past his prime, there were stories going around that right after the national expansion, Vince was going to bring him to New York for a run against Hogan. Hogan nixed it because he was afraid that Perez would go into business for himself and try and take the title. Can you imagine how history would have been changed if that happened?

I also heard somewhere that after he retired from active ring work, he tried his hand at booking behind the scenes and may have been behind some of WCW's greatest moments.

I saw him on an old Super8 film from the Fort Hesterly armory against Terry Funk, and Dory ran in for the double team. I knew at that point EMP was a really big deal because both Dusty Rhodes AND Eddie Graham came out to run off the Funks.

I've heard that too.

As an AWA guy I wish his run would have been longer.

The rumor was he stretched a young Greg during a training session and Verne fired him.

That was clearly bs. Greg was a strong grappler, and experience or not, EMP just wasn't that good.

I disagree. I only saw him in his younger days but if he was active today he would be main eventing. He would be similiar to Sheamus.
After leaving the area I kinda forgot about him. If his talent declined when he entered the AWA... well I am going to have to rely on your word.

Eduardo once killed 6 gringos with a single toothpick at a donkey show in Tijuana for saying less than that. Watch your back.

I remember in the early 1970's when he came to Pittsburgh and then NWF Cleveland/Buffalo  him teaming with Victor Rivera and fueding with the Mongols and then The Fargo's.  In Pittsburgh he once helped deliver a baby at ringside while still punching Don Fargo in the face

It was verified by Superstar Graham for sure and maybe Billy Robinson. It explains why he was only in the territory for a month or so. I'm not sure why they would lie.

*sigh* Clearly, you don't understand the climate of the times. EMP was clearly more charismatic than SBG, was clearly the superior shooter to BR, and was clearly a better, more tender lover than Donna Gagne. Clearly, you shouldn't believe everything you read, TUS.

In my alternate WWF wish, Backlund keeps the belt through 1984 and feuds with the stable of Piper, Orndorff, Orton Jr., and EMP.
EMP eventually wins the title in late '84 or early '85- I don't think Backlund would have a problem with this considering EMP's wrestling ability- and McMahon goes with a heel champ for a while. But Perez eventually turns face and we see wrestling's all time greatest feud- babyface WWF champ Perez vs. heel Piper.

EMP is overrated. He never worked Memphis. All the greats worked Memphis at least once.

Was this the same guy?  Eduardo Perez wrestled in Gulf Coast as well as Southeastern.  I've been trying to find a picture of Eduardo Miguel Perez because I can't picture him unless he's the same guy as Eduardo Perez.  Anyone know?
