217. Pampero Firpo

He was wild, crazy looking and with a thick Argentine accent, Pampero Firpo stood out in what was a very colorful crowd.  Firpo had a natural look of a heel, and wrestled in a style that would predate the Hardcore scene that would popularize wresting later.  Despite his crazy look, Firpo did have a natural charisma that allowed him to have a very successful face run against the Sheik in the Detroit area.  Firpo also popularized the elongated “Ohhhh Yeahhhhh” phrase long before Randy Savage, though if those two words can’t get the Macho Man in, we don’t think it will do much for Firpo.
