Notes

  • Real-life wrestler Reginald Lisowski would later start using this exact ring name in the late 1950s and would keep it for the remainder of his career. The American Wrestling Association, where Lisowski often wrestled, used a masked competitor called The Masked Terror, like Bugs Bunny's wrestling persona when he wrestled The Crusher in "Bunny Hugged", from 1963 and 1964
