We find the name Quasimodo on British posters for the first time in February, 1960, an independent promotion in Liverpool wrestling Max Crabtree. It was a match repeated time and again during the year. By then he had around a dozen or so years experience behind him, we have seen one unconfirmed reference to a professional debut in 1943. Quasimodo wrestled all the usual independent top liners Al Hayes, Ray Hunter, Dr Death, and so on. In 1963 Quasimodo began to work for Joint Promotions, though we still find appearances working for Paul Lincoln (evidenced by that letter from the HMRC) and the waters are muddied further by a masked Hunchback on independent bills.
All three of his television appearances, against Vic Stewart, Roy St Clair and Colin Joynson are for Wryton Promotions. Quasimodo remained a regular visitor to Britain every year until 1969, then there was a break until a final visit in December 1971.
Wrestling in Europe, the USA, Mexico and Japan Quasimodo was an international star who, albeit ridiculed, the fans loved to watch. A great gimmick certainly, but also a decent wrestler underneath the bizarre garb, and certainly one of the most colourful characters of the 1960s wrestling scene.
