Guy Larose (A canadian) started wrestling after the war in the 1950s using a german heel gimmick..
Hans Schmidt was one the most hated wrestlers alive, playing an evil German..
Hans Schmidt formed tag teams with Dick 'The Bulldog' Brower, Hans Hermann and Fritz von Erich..
Hans Schmidt would often use his World War II helmet, which he wore to the ring, as a weapon against his opponents..
One of the 1950s wrestling magazines refused to list Schmidt in their top ten..
~~~They claimed he was "too rough for ratings" they listed him in "a catagory of his own"..
October 1954: Hans Schmidt squared off with Buddy Rogers at the Akron Armory in Ohio..
~~~Schmidt was so hated he actuially turned Rogers into a babyface with no corresponding angle..
~~~This encounter saw them trading falls and in the third fall, the ring broke!
Hans Schmidt was still wrestling in Montreal in the 70s -- billed from Chicago, ironically where he had the most success..
Guy Larose is now rumored to be somewhat of a hermit, living in the woods somewhere in the province of Quebec..
