The dragon for his many wrestling suits was designed by the Arts and Craft teacher, Mrs Jill Mossom from Blessed Edwards School in Rhyl.
His funniest moment in wrestling was when he was in a bout with a well known wrestler who's wig came off in the first round. The contest had to be cancelled when the wrestler refused to return to the ring.
Eddie's saddest moment was when friend Mike Marino choked and died by the side of the road on his way back from a show with Mal Sanders.
Scariest moment: was flying back from Africa when smoke started coming into the cabin. The pilot had to turn the plane round and head back to the airport, where fire engines were lined up on the runway. Apart from white knuckles, everyone was OK.
He has wrestled in Paris, The Sudan, Zimbabwe, Sicily, Doha, Bahrain, Turkey and Canada, and of course all of the UK and Channel Islands.
Favourite leisure clothes: is tracksuit bottoms, loose t-shirt, bare feet, and of course a rum and coke.
Eddie did a screen test for a movie about a man with mystical and magical powers. He had been seen wrestling on the TV and was thought to be ideal for the leading role. It was to be named 'Wonderman', but was scrapped when another film hit the screen. It's name.............'Superman'.
He wrestled at Kings Lynn in Norfolk, going on first, still in his wrestling clothes, he jumped into his car and drove to Norwich to wrestle last. It was a good day's pay packet, but he was knackered by the end of the night.
Eddie's favourite sport before going into wrestling, was Sub Aqua. Each weekend, he would join 2 of his friends and go diving, looking for a sunken galleon called The Gerona which had sunk off the coast of Ireland. They never found it, but a Belgium professional diving team found her and her cargo of copper and gold coins. These coins and the 15 foot length of solid gold chain, can now be seen in The Belfast Museum.
He bought his first book called 'Teach yourself Judo' at the age of 12, and when his elder brother Frank laughed at him practising, he lifted him and threw him on top of the coals in the corner of the yard. When Eddie appeared on TV years later, his brother would say to his friends ' I used to beat him up when we were kids'.
He arrived at a venue in London to do a televised bout and was told that all the outside Broadcasting Units were on strike. The TV company opened up a studio in Wood Lane and employed extras to fill one side of the studio only, which they filmed with one camera. Before it was televised, they dubbed in the crowd shouting and cheering. Eddie was still wearing a mask at this time and the fight was against Bert Royal.
Eddie got into wrestling when he saw an advert in his local newspaper wanting young men to train as professional wrestlers.
After watching Eddie's third fight in The Ulster Hall in Belfast, wrestling promoter Arthur Green of Relwyskow and Green Promotions, advised him to stick to his day job as he was not very good. Years later this same man offered him extra money if he would wrestle for them.
After leaving school, Eddie served his time as a carpet fitter, and was still doing this job up until he left Belfast to become a wrestler. He was interested years later to read that James Garner, the star of ' The Rockford Files' was also a carpet fitter.
His first wage for wrestling was just £6.
When wrestling, Eddie travelled over 2,000 miles a week.
He was told by a fortune teller that he would do very well in the wrestling business, and would never break any bones. Eddie suffered from torn ligaments, dislocated joints, pulled muscles, black eyes, cut lips and was black and blue from head to toe, but never broke one bone in his body.
On his first trip to Turkey, he was asked if he wanted to fly out or go by car. He decided to go by car with promoter Brian Dixon, Kevin Connelly and Whirlwind Munro. On their return home, they were stopped by Turkish border Police as there had been a Cholera outbreak in Turkey, and because Eddie's injections were not up to date, the Police would not let them through. They were advised to go back to Istanbul, have Eddie get his injections, wait a week and then travel back to the UK. The driver asked if they could go through the border gates and turn the car round and head back. However, when the guard was inspecting another car, the driver kept going. For the next hour, they were all a bundle of nerves thinking that the Police might send a helicopter after them, but nothing happened and they arrived back in the UK safe and sound. On Eddie's next visit to Turkey years later, he made sure he had his injections up to date.
He is a big fan of Laurel and Hardy and has most of their films on video. His favourite being 'Way out West' where they do a song and dance routine. It includes the song 'In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia' which later came out on vinyl.
