-Real name was Ruben Huizar.
-Born in Phoenix
, AZ. Sometimes billed from San Antonio, TX
-Not to be confused with Tito Montez, who worked in the Gulf Coast territory under this name or The Mighty Mongol
who used the name in Calgary and the Northeast.
-Trained by Princess Tona Toma. He's one of the very few male wrestlers to be trained by a female wrestler.
-For a time, he wore a mask, but wrestled under his name Eddie Sullivan
. There didn't seem to be any purpose for this mask.
-In 1967, Eddie Sullivan had a lengthy run on the undercard in the Oklahoma
area, facing Ronnie Etchison, Tarzan Baxter
, Rocky Montero
, Gorgeous George, Jr and Jerry London
, as well as a then new/obscure newcomer with an amateur background named Gerald (Jerry) Brisco
-Sullivan rose to stardom in Arizona thanks to a feuds with Cowboy Bob Ellis which filled the old Phoenix Madison Square Garden to standing room only for over a month straight. Sullivan did receoive various shots at the NWA World Title during his southern run, including a main event in Mobile, Alabama, versus Terry Funk
-Sullivan had an expressed/verified dislike for Tojo
Yamamoto and noted how this man would always tease the trained bear on Gulas' shows until one evening when he and Rip Tyler heard Tojo coming and unlocked the cage, letting the angry bear out and though usually tame, the bear chased his antagonist all the way out of the building.
-Sullivan & Rip Tyler played wrestlers in bit parts in a couple of Japanese movies when they were on tour in Japan..
-1997: Eddie Sullivan & Cowboy Bob Kelly & The Time Traveler appeared in a short half hour film called Gunfight in Tombstone. Sullivan was not a very convincing Doc Holiday, with his size, supposed to be portraying a gunfighting dentist dying from TB.
-Performed real life heroics in Florida when he rescued a little girl trapped in an overturned trailer when a tornado hit..
-Trained a number of indy wrestlers including Moses Morales, Baron Brubaker, Killer Jack Kressig, and more. He was also supposedly helpful in training a young Bob Holly, who wrestled in the WWE
as Hardcore Holly..
-Was instrumental in helping to organize the annual old-timer reunion in Phoenix, Arizona. He was a frequent attendee at the old-timer reunions in Mobile, Alabama and Seattle, Washington. In Mobile, he received the "Man of the Year" award a few years before his death..
-Passed away at the age of 59 on November 24, 2000. The cause was either a heart attack or a stroke. He was buried in Sioux Falls, SD.
