I recently heard that Rito Romero passed away in his hometown of Guadalajara, Jalisco on January 18th. He had a reputation as a technical master and a guy that could handle himself pretty well inside and outside the ring. You wrestled him several times, so what are your memories of him?
Also, I have been trying to compile a list of your Mexican tours. As far as I know you were there in 1954 (NWA title match vs. Gory Guerrero), 64 (with Black Shadow vs. Benny Galan and Rene Guajardo), 65 (with Blue Demon vs. Los Espantos), 1975 (vs. Mil Mascaras at Plaza Mexico -the infamous rainstorm match-, vs. Dixon in Puebla), and you also wrestled for UWA during the summer of 76, 77, 78 (vs. Canek), and you were ther in 1982 as a special ref in the main event of their anniversary show. I'd understand if you couldn't remember after such a long time, but do you remember any other of your Mexican tours? Among all the wrestlers you faced or saw there, who would you regard as the best? and the worst?
That's all. I think it's great that somebody like you is here to talk with fans like us. Many thanks for your time.
