Reyes Garcia

Reyes Garcia, billed from San Antonio, Texas, worked in Arizona in the late 1960s and early 1970s, bit  like so many others, has become lost in the shuffle as far as memories go, with the passing of history.

Garcia was always a fan favorite, with a capacity for high-flying dropkicks to put his oppobebts down and enable the pinfall.

His most distinguished feud was with the Mad Mongol. Who this Mongol was remains a mystery as it was not Mongol Lu Kimm (Rive Wright) fromthe 1950s and not Mikko Mongol (Mike Gordon, hence the name Mikko, pronounced Mike-o for inside humor) from the 1970s.

Garcia and The Mad Mongol traded wins on the circuit for some time, before the villain injured Hispanic   opponent, leading to a different feud pitting Mongol vs Tito Montez.

Garcia leftArizona after that.

His whereabouts afterward would be anyone's guess.
