He is best known for his work from the 1950s through the early 1980s in the Memphis and Alabama territories, though he and [[UnrelatedBrothers Don Fargo]] broke attendance records with their match against Wrestling/AntoninoRocca and Miguel Perez at Madison Square Garden in 1957. He is credited with introducing tables and chairs into the Southern brawling style in Memphis. He also trained Memphis' all-time #1 star, [[Wrestling/JerryLawler Jerry "The King" Lawler]] and, in the storyline, put together Steve Keirn and Stan Lane as Wrestling/TheFabulousOnes. He retired in 1984, though he [[TenMinuteRetirement had a few comeback matches]] in 1985 and 1991, and teamed up with Lane and Cory Macklin to defeat Lawler and the Rock N Roll Express at "Memphis Wrestling Throwback Night III- A Nightmare in Memphis" on October 30, 2004. Along with other Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance legends, he appeared at ''[[Wrestling/{{TNA}} NWA TNA #1]]'' on June 19, 2002. Among his in-ring achievements, he was a 15x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tn/nwa/tn-nwa-t.html NWA World (Mid-America) Tag Team Champion]], a 22x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tn/cwa/awa-s-t.html Southern (Memphis) Tag Team Champion]] and a 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/ga/nwa/ga-nwa-t.html NWA (Georgia) World Tag Team Champion]]. He also originated the "Fargo Strut" later brought national by Wrestling/RicFlair and used by the Fabulous Ones and, later, Wrestling/JeffJarrett. He was inducted into the ''[[Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter Wrestling Observer Newsletter]]'' Hall of Fame in 1996. He died of heart failure at the age of 82 on June 24, 2013.
