204. Pepper Gomez
Known for his “cast iron stomach”, Pepper Gomez was a major force in California and in Texas and competed up and down the card. Physically, Gomez was ahead of his time and was built like a concrete sculpture, not typical of the wrestlers of his era.   His feuds with Ray Stevens are still stuff of San Francisco legend.
