John Tolos and his brother Chris Tolos were grapplers from the days when grappling was still a local business.
John Tolos also known as the Golden Greek was the main event in Los Angeles for all of the 70s! The man was a villain and a good guy and his feuds with Earl Maynard, Rocky "Soul Man" Johnson, Victor Rivera, Ruben Juarez, Mil Mascaras are memorable!
Who can forget when he busted a guitar upside Raul Mata's head and when he threw the doctor powder in Freddie Blassie's eyes! That event let to a giant revenge match that filled the Colisieum in Los Angeles!
Anyway, the Golden Greek is gone and I didn't even find out until today! He died on May 29, 2009.
Rest in peace my man!
