Mongolian Stomper

The Mongolian Stomper (real name - Archie Gouldie) wrestled primarily in Southeast Championship Wrestling and in Stampede Wrestling in his career. His career began in the early 1960's and continued well into the 1990's. Gouldie rarely spoke when using the Mongolian Stomper gimmick in other promotions, often relying on managers such as Ron Wright, Don Carson and John Foley to speak for him on promos; when he competed in Stampede, however, Gouldie cut surprisingly articulate, and often intense, promos. The Stomper preferred to do his talking in the ring. - from wikipedia
I've drawn him in the headset he sported while wrestling in Georgia. If memory serves me correct, the gimmick was that the fans jeers and loud noises caused him actual pain, so he wore the headset to not be distracted in demolishing his opponents. And if that's not wrestling gold, then I don't know what is.
