1970's WWWF Wrestler Tony Marino was BATTMAN!!
A friend sent me a link the other day to a piece of weird "Batman News". In the 1970's there was an Italian Wrestler who, because of the 1966 Batman TV Show craze, carried on the persona of Batman. Actually, he called himself BATTMAN!! He wrestled in the WWWF circuit in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania & later on he became part of a tag team when he joined up with "Robin". According to Wikipedia, his custom outfits were created by Karl & Hildegarde's of Columbus, Ohio. OK, here's the deal, these are the only pics of this guy I could find so I'm wondering if anybody else knows of any. If so, then please send them, thanks...BATTMAN!!
