-Actually the second wrestler to use the name "Gypsy Joe
". The first one wrestled primarily in the northeast part of the country from the 1940's until 1970's.
-First wrestler to ever successfully jump off a steel cage onto an opponent.
-In April 2003, Joe was involved in a memorable hardcore match with New Jack in which, due to Joe no-selling throughout the match, New Jack legitimately attacked the sexagenarian with a chain, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, and several other weapons.
-Believed to be oldest active wrestler on the circuit today.
