Jody Arnold Photo Gallery

Born in Tempe, Arizona, Jody Arnold was trained by his uncle Don Arnold and the late Ray Gordon. In 1968 he made his debut in Phoenix, wrestling "Maniac" Mike Gordon to a 20-minute draw.

From 1969 to 1981, he was the most hated man in the old Arizona territory, beating "Cowboy" Bob Ellis, Luis Martinez, Afa and Sika Anoai, Tito Mantez, Johnny Kostos, Billy Anderson, Nano Ortega, David Rose, Woody Farmer, and more in long, bloody feuds.

In 1981, Arnold became a fan favorite and again built an impressive winning streak over John Ringer, Steve Gator Wolf, "Mad Dog" Marcial Bovee, The Monster, The Lumberjacks, Rich Davidson, and "Superstar" Billy Graham (in a win which the magazines suppressed, fearing it would hurt Graham's WWF comeback.)

In 1985 Arnold retired, though he has trained several sons to shootfight. One may make a pro wrestling debut soon.
