Recommended Posts

Hércules has been struggling with health complications for some years now and unfortunately his wife and El Profe have confirmed he passed away this morning.

RIP. A real favourite of mine back in the day, an imposing figure to see in the ring live, and one of those guys that was big in some places but never ventured to any of the big 3, possibly by his own choice.

He also ventured a bit in Montreal in the dying days of Lutte Internationale when Gino Brito was counting on his working relationship with World Wrestling Council to keep the territory running. I believe that Ayala also was the last International champion but I'd have to dig up in the archives to be sure.

International is where I saw him live. Also I think Abdullah was he last champ, they did the switch at every stop in the circuit from what I recall :)

And after verification, you're correct. Abdullah fought Ayala over the vacant title when Dr. D David Schultz left the promotion. Ayala never won the title.
