Why did Gino Brito go by Louis Cerdan in the WWF?
I just watched he and Tony Parisi defend the belts against Superstar Billy Graham and Ivan Koloff.  The fans at MSG sure were into them.

While we're at it, why did the guy who was the number 2 baby of the company for five years as Antonio Pugliese come back as Tony Parisi? Was it just so the Grand Wizard could call him Greasy Parisi?

He was supposed to be the cousin of Flying Frenchman Edouard Carpentier in an angle. At that time Tony Parisi was Antonio Pugliese who was Bruno Sammartino's cousin

To promote his restaurant in Niagara Falls?

You're thinking of Ilio DiPaolo who came back as Trish Stratus.
