Taken directly from the Victor Hugo novel, the Hunchback Of Notre Dame, this Quasimodo was a hump back who made the best out of his overall ugliness and wrestled.

Though he  only made it to Arizona a handful of  times while driving  between Texas and California, his uncanny appearance, as he hobbled about the ring before the matches started, ringing a large bell which often  found its  way into  the bout  later on and dressed in his weird court jester outfit, always brought rounds of laugher mixed with boos.

The hunchback character received a far bigger push in Texas than in other places in the USA, though eh also made it as far as Europe. He proved to be a big draw in England and France.

But one may add his name tot he list of many oddball creations who passed through Arizona.
