Biography/Additional Facts

Early in his career, he formed a tag team with Dusty Rhodes and they won the NWA World Tag Team Titles from Ivan Koloff and Don Kernodle. They feuded with them and Ivan's "nephew" Nikita Koloff until losing the titles to the Koloffs in early 1985.

Manny soon became involved in a feud with Arn Anderson after being attacked by Anderson and laid out. He teamed with Thunderbolt Patterson to feud with Arn and Ole Anderson.

In late 1985, he started helping Jimmy Valiant in his war against Paul Jones and his "Army". He formed a team with Valiant called the B and B Connection ("Boogie Woogie" & "Bull"). He had some matches against Abdullah the Butcher and The Barbarian. He also formed a tag team with Hector Guerrero in 1986 called The Latin Connection. In the summer of 1986, Manny accepted Jones' money and turned on Valiant starting a feud between the two. Later in the year, Jones also brought in Rick Rude and he paired them together and they won the NWA World Tag Team Titles from the Rock 'N Roll Express. They feuded with the Express and kept the titles until June 1987 when Rude left the promotion, which was resolved with a "phantom title change".

Manny teamed with Ivan Koloff for the rest of the summer and left for the Mid-Southern promotion in late 1987. He was soon in the American Wrestling Association feuding with Wahoo McDaniel after he attacked Wahoo and destroyed his headdress. After that feud ended in late 1988, Manny headed to Puerto Rico's WWC where he stayed through 1991 and then he headed to the independent circuit.

As of 2005, he wrestles primarily in the Texas independants.
