Here are photos of Midget Wrestlers who performed during the Golden Age.

Below the pictures is a clarification of the term "midget" from the Little People of America website.

Many thanks to Greg Oliver of SLAM! Wrestling for contributing photos for this gallery. We highly recommend his books, co-authored by Steve Johnson, in
The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame series.

Their book on the midget wrestlers is in progress.
The following information is from the Little People of America web site.

Q: What is a midget?

A: In some circles, a midget is the term used for a proportionate dwarf. However, the term has fallen into disfavor and is considered offensive by most people of short stature. The term dates back to 1865, the height of the "freak show" era, and was generally applied only to short-statured persons who were displayed for public amusement, which is why it is considered so unacceptable today.

Such terms as dwarf, little person, LP, and person of short stature are all acceptable, but most people would rather be referred to by their name than by a label.

Pancho the Bull
(Ferdinand Tucci)
Pancho the Bull was one of Canada's outstanding midget wrestlers, a hard working and talented athlete as well as a gentleman and devoted father. Above (left) he is shown in a 1969 tag match with Little Beaver, whom he personally coached and taught the tricks of the trade. The photo on the right was taken during a promotional tour in Hollywood. When Pancho the Bull passed away on July 3, 1977, the wrestling world, of fans and fellow performers alike, lost one its brightest stars.
