209. Alfonso Dantes
At the top of the card for years in Mexico and the border states, Alfonso Dantes was a tank of a wrestler (hence his nickname of El Tanque) and was also a second generation performer.  Dantes was predominantly a heel and the unmasked wrestler (not exactly common in Mexico) feuded with every top star in Mexico in his day.  He was also a multi-time NWA Light Heavyweight Champion.
