Berry (November 20, 1906 – July 21, 1973), better known by the ring name "Wild" Red Berry, was an American professional wrestler.Berry was a nine-time NWA World Light Heavyweight Champion and an important smaller wrestler of the 1930s to the 1950s, as well as a famous professional wrestling manager in his later years.
Standing only 5'8", Berry had to find creative ways to win his matches, which is why he oftentimes turned to rule breaking.
His defiant in-ring actions made him one of the most hated professional wrestlers of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.
Berry did not care, as his disregard for authority eventually lead him to more than fifteen professional wrestling championship reigns over the course of his lengthy career.Berry continued his deviant behavior long after his in-ring career came to a close.
As manager to such top stars as Gorilla Monsoon, The Fabulous Kangaroos and Bull Ramos, Berry was not above using his signature cane as a weapon.
