Oh, another memory. Rassler Len "Kojak" Shelley lived near a friend, so I discovered that he had two active identities; as a "good guy", no mask, and "bad guy" with a mask. He really did pretend to be two different people, sometimes rassling twice in the same evening. Luckily he was never matched against himself.

Everyone wanted to be a bad guy; the villains were the real draw and got paid more!
