ATTENTION: You may copy information from this site as long as you will give credits to this site and these people.

Known as "Killer", Wladek Kowalski wrestled for three decades between 1947 and 1977.

Trained by the legendary Lou Thesz, he was skilled as a pure wrestler. However, he is remembered mostly for the 1957 match in which he ripped Yukon Eric's ear. Though Eric never had a grudge against him, the incident helped his career as one of the biggest heels in the history of the sport.

After his retirement, he started a wrestling school in Massachussetts, where he trained the stars such as Big John Studd, Perry Saturn, John Kronus, Triple H, Chyna, Chris Nowinski, Giant Bernard, April Hunter, Frankie Kazarian, etc.
