'''Adrian Street''' (b. 1940) is a retired UsefulNotes/{{W|ales}}elsh {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er who competed from the 1950s all the way into 2010 primarily as '''"Exotic" Adrian Street'''. He started his career as '''Kid [=Tarzan=] Jonathan''' and also wrestled as '''Hell's Angel #1'''. He developed his outrageous image, he claims, sort of by accident since he had been getting such a good reaction from the character. He wrestled for decades all over the world. In the U.S., he competed in Memphis, Florida, the Mid-Atlantic, Los Angeles, Mid-South, the Continental territory in Alabama and for the Global Wrestling Federation in Dallas as well as many independents. Among his in-ring achievements, he held the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/midsouth/mswa/mswa-tv.html Mid-South Television Title]], the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/fl/fl-h.html NWA Florida Heavyweight Title]] and the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/ca/la/hw/ams-h.html NWA Americas (Los Angeles) Heavyweight Title]]. In 1986, he won ''Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter'''s "Best Gimmick" Award.
