El Ángel Exterminador
|Angel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel)|
The original L'Ange Blanc ("The White Angel") was a well-known masked wrestler in France during the 1950s and 60's. Although his real name was Francisco Pino. While he was from Spain, French wrestling fans claimed him as their own. To date, he is still the biggest star French wrestling has ever had, much bigger than André the Giant. He was almost as popular in France as Santo was in Mexico. L'Ange Blanc was enigmatic and one of the first aerial wrestlers during the heyday of French wrestling.
After being unmasked in England, he changed his name to El Angel Blanco (which means the same thing but in Spanish)
He worked in USA (as Pancho Pino) and Mexico under the name of El Angel Exterminator (The Exterminating Angel) because in Mexico already existed another Angel Blanco, in luchas de apuestas wins the hair of Black Shadow and ends up losing his mask with El Angel Blanco in 1967.
