Masked Superstar

Widely regarded as being one of the first ( if not the first ) men to slam Andre the giant, the Masked Superstar ( Bill Eadie ) was a main-player for many years in American wrestling. A 4 time Georgia champ, he in fact later unified that title with the NWA National Heavyweight title. Superstar also ventured to the WWF for a time in 1983 where he faced off against many of their top stars, including champion Bob Backlund. He returned to the Fed again in 1985, this time under a different mask thought... as the "Super" Machine (I bet they were up all night coming up with that one... let alone Andre the Giant's "Giant" Machine moniker).Bill Eadie ( who also wrestled as demolition Ax ) supports the good work of the Inner Harbour Hospital Springs Campus in Rockmart, Georgia. For several years, the Masked Superstar has made many of his masks and wrestling gear available to wrestling fans through raffles and auctions, the proceeds of which support the general operating fund of the non-profit Inner Harbour Hospital.
