Wrestling Memories Part 62

Argentine wildman Firpo files his teeth before a match
From Larry Goodman:

Below is a link to Mike Mooneyham's story on Pampero Firpo, who I got to see wrestle at the Chicago Amphitheater as a kid. Firpo was featured on Vern Gagne's AWA All-Star Wrestling show out of Minneapolis, although he was much bigger star in the Detroit area. Firpo was a larger-than-life character as the photo at left demonstrates. Firpo had a shrunken head called "Chimu" that he would put to good use during matches.
