Ernie Moore | Mormon Wrestlers

[sc:top_left_adsense300x250_1] Known as ‘The Executioner’, Ernie Moore was a famous Mormon wrestler who was brought into the role because the promoter and booker was a man short. Donning the mask, Moore found that he revelled in playing the ‘heel’, a pro-wrestling term for the wrestler attempting to earn the ire of the crowd to enhance the atmosphere. He quickly took up wrestling and toured the country, terrifying people with his persona and unique mask.

Despite his in-ring persona, Moore was a gentle giant who would break up fights using his physique to placate people rather than injure them. He worked a variety of jobs, and was every inch the devout Mormon to his faith.
