365.  Jose Estrada Sr.

Jose Estrada Sr. may be best known as an enhancement worker usually working the opening match putting over an up and coming baby face in arena cards for the WWE in the early 1980’s, but Estrada was actually a former title holder in the biggest wrestling promotion in the world.  Estrada was the Junior Heavyweight Champion, and though he failed to win any other belts in the WWE, he was much decorated in the Puerto Rican WWC promotion as the masked Super Medic.  Estrada was a very good worker and with his ring work he made others look good in their victories over him.  Also, any chance we have to write up one half of the Conquistadors (our favorite guilty pleasure tag team of the late 80’s), sign us up!
