Old school territory star and everyone’s favorite wrestling foot fetishist Tony Atlas was no stranger to Puerto Rico. As a squash machine, Atlas was a pretty meat and potatoes wrestler focusing on a lot of power moves and doing little out of the norm for even big matches. The reason Atlas is so fondly remembered though and has had great longevity in the art of professional wrestling is because of his natural charisma, which makes it easy for him to work the crowd.
Or I should say his natural charisma…and the fact that he had one of the most chiseled bodies of all the major drawing 1980’s wrestlers. Going up against the pot-belied Destroyer there is little question who the fans see as the bigger superstar.
