Biography

American professional wrestler, also known by the ring name "The California Hippie," who made his debut in 1966. Prior to his career in wrestling, he became a judo champion while serving in the United States Marines and earned a place in the 1964 Olympic team in Tokyo, but broke his leg and had to give up his spot. He was trained in wrestling by Eddie Sharkey and Verne Gagne. He became second in all three United States Tag Team title competitions. In the early '80s he was given a push in Southwest Championship Wrestling as 'Grenade Boyer,' a heel character who could "explode" at any time. The character was not popular and Boyette was regulated to jobber. In 1985, Boyette wrestled in the Universal Wrestling Federation and had a total of 197 losses. Boyette died on 6 December 2012, aged 69, in Alabama, survived by his daughter and two sons.
