Dave McKigney would debut at MLG in 1958. He would continue to appear in the area as a wrestler and promoter untill his tragic death while touring Newfoundland in 1988.
Started out as Jacques (later Gene/Jean) Dubois and appeared under numerous names and variations on The Wildman theme.
Dave is still loved in these parts, fondly remembered by workers and fans alike, and has his own place in Canadian folklore.
He could usually be found wrestling one of his bears, or teaming with longtime partner The Wolfman causing mayhem in the smaller circuit around Ontario.
