Professional wrestling career[edit]

Johnson began his career as a professional boxer, but later turned to professional wrestling after befriending Ernie Ladd.[1] Johnson initially turned down the offer from Jack Britton to join the sport, but later tried it anyway.[1] He began his training in Detroit.[1] He later worked in Pittsburgh and Ontario.[1]

In 1972, he teamed with Chief Jay Strongbow to win the World Wide Wrestling Federation's World Tag Team Championship from Baron Mikel Scicluna and King Curtis Iaukea.[1][2] After a month, they lost the title to the team of Professor Tanaka and Mr. Fuji.[2]

Johnson won the NWA Alabama Heavyweight Championship in Alabama in March 1977. In 1978 and 1979, Johnson worked in Memphis as a manager to Jos Leduc and Ron Bass.[1] He also feuded with Jerry Lawler for the Southern Championship.[1] While with Championship Wrestling from Florida, he traded the Florida version of the NWA Brass Knuckles Championship with Killer Karl Kox.

While partnering with The Angel in the Continental Wrestling Association in 1980, he won the AWA Southern Tag Team Championship. He retired in the mid-1980s.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Johnson grew up in Louisiana.[1] After retiring from wrestling, he worked in a junkyard in South Florida, buying and selling car parts.[1] His son played football for the South Carolina Gamecocks.[1]

Championships and accomplishments[edit]
