His famed Mohawk haircut and Indian ring gear made him an instant favorite with the fans. His wrestling skills surpassed his height of four feet two inches. He took part in an international tournament of midget wrestling in Paris, France to become recognized as the Midget World Champion. His high flying moves and drop kicks were all the rage during his matches. His days as a wrestler gave fans world wide a great enjoyment. The Canadian native departed from our world in December of 1996.
