The Mad Monks, Amadeus and Fly Boy all came out of the Nogales area into Arizona in 1990, where they continued to feud with each other for around a year.
The two Mad Monks dressed in brown gear and masks, with hair glued on like Friar Tuck . Their wrestling was anything but holy or wholesome. They broke every rule in the book and then some.
This made for a sharp contrast with the smaller, but much faster and much more charismatic team of Amadeus and Fly Boy. The former wore a mask and the latter did not.
While their feud was not as violent or as long-lasting as The Comancheros vs Ben Justice & Pancho Pico or The Lumberjacks vs David Rose & Pedro El Grande, it had its moments. There was, for example, the time the to Mad Monks took the cap off a beer bottle and passed it between them, using this to turn Fly Boy into the bloody mess to end all bloody messes. Luckily in this Phoenix encounter, Fly Boy and Amadeus won or a riot would have broken out.
The two met in Tucson, Casa Grande, Queen Creek and Laveen as well. The advantage shifted as did the wins from match to match. Often their encoutners ended with both teams counted out after brawling in the stands.
The funny part is this feud was never resolved in a climatic match to a finish, as The Monks bolted back to Mexico, as did Amadeus, leaving Fly Boy to remain in Phoenix, where he continued as a singles competitor..
In retrospect no one seems willing to reveal the identity of the two Mad Monks, but surely they were friends with fellow wrestlers in the locker room. The secret was and still is guarded as secretly as a confessional.
Shades of Nacho Libre?
No. Not really.
Still, it was fun while it lasted.
