Welcome all to another trip down memory lane, and the Atlantic Grand Prix Column.

Last month, I talked about the fan favorites that graced the squared circle in the Maritimes. This month we'll take a look at the men, that put fear in the fans of the Maritimes.

Cuban Assassin

The one and only original Cuban Assassin. His real name is Angel Acevedo. He trained in Florida under Eddie Graham, and soon made the transition from boxer to wrestler.

One of the original heels in the Maritime. When he would come out from the dressing room in his green army pants, the crowd would almost riot trying to get their hands on him. Long thick black hair, and a beard that was just as long, he would scare little children and give them nightmares. The Cuban wrestled all over the world, and was a household name not only in Maritimes, but also in Calgary, where he gave a young Bret Hart, his first match.

Some of the Cuban's best matches have been in the Maritimes, against the Beast, Leo Burke, Stephen Petitpas, but the Cuban wasn't only a heel here in the Maritimes, in 1985 he became a fan favorite. I don't want to spill everything about this right now, but I'll have much more next month.

"Bulldog" Bob Brown

Go to any wrestling arena in the Maritimes, and mention the name of "Bulldog" Bob Brown, and you would be told stories, that would possibly make you laugh. This man would literally cause a riot, just by looking at the fans.

A veteran of the Central States wrestling region, he was a well known down here. He would mostly be involved in tag team matches, but was not shy to enter the ring, and go at it in singles. He had a vicious feud with Jos LeDuc in 1984, after Brown and his then partner Mr. Pogo attacked LeDuc's son Robert. After, LeDuc left the area shortly after that feud, Brown and Pogo destroyed Buddy Lane in a TV Match, that left Lane a bloody mess. Brown would return on several different occasions, but mostly teaming with his nephew Kerry Brown (known as Rick Valentine).

"No Class" Bobby Bass

Momma's Boy "No Class" Bobby Bass was a fixture in the maritime provinces for many, many years. Not only was he a wrestler, but also a manager.

Bass didn't hold many titles, but managed several champions. Bass was notorious for causing havoc. Claiming to be from Pampa, TX. He would always come to the ring with the American flag, and praise the USA. Bass was always in the middle of controversy, wether it be wrestling Stephen Petitpas, Leo Burke or the Cuban Assassin or managing men like the Super Destroyer, Sweet Daddy Siki, Iranian Sheik and many others. Bobby Bass was always causing havoc.

Rick Valentine

The first time I saw Rick Valentine wrestle, I was 8 years old, and he scared the living daylights out of me. He was a fairly big and stocky guy, with dirty blonde hair. But Valentine was not his real name, his real name was Kerry Brown (Bulldog Bob Brown's nephew).

Valentine held the Maritime version of the US Heavyweight Title, also held the Tag Team title on several different occasions with Uncle Bulldog. Some of Valentines major fights where against Stephen Petitpas. These matches would normally end up being pull apart brawls. These 2 men despised each other, and it totally appeared that way in the ring, however they would always entertain the fans to the limit.

The Spoiler (Don Jardine)

The original Spoiler was well known not only in the Maritimes (where he was born), but all over the world. One of the original big men to walk the ropes, and use some high flying maneuvers.  More...
