|My first look at Zuma came in 1966 when he returned to Jim Crockett Promotions. He was basically a smaller version of Antonino Rocca. He did all the same moves as Rocca did here in 1963 and Argentina Apollo who would later come to JCP in 1970. The one thing he did that I don't remember seeing Rocca or Apollo do was after he would down his opponent with 3 or 4 quick dropkicks or escape one of their holds, Zuma would stand in the center of the ring with his feet and legs tightly together. Then with the upper half of his body it looked like he was dancing the "Twist" to a Chubby Checker record.
