'''John Sutton''' (1949-2011) was an American ProfessionalWrestling manager from [[UsefulNotes/TwinCities Minneapolis]], MN known for his work in various Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance territories and other promotions during the 1970s and 1980s as '''Sir Oliver Humperdink'''. He started his career in [[UsefulNotes/CanadianProvincesAndTerritories Montreal, Quebec, Canada]] in 1973. Don "The Spoiler" Jardine and Dale Hey (later known as Buddy Roberts of the Fabulous Freebirds) are credited with coming up with the name, with the intention of getting {{Heel}} heat because of how the [[CheapHeat Francophone fans hated anything English]]. He worked primarily as a manager, though he did briefly hold the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/fl/fl-h.html NWA Florida Heavyweight Title]], which he awarded to Ed "The Bull" Gantner, and the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/centralstates/nwa/cs-tv.html NWA Central States Television Title]]. He also had a short run in Wrestling/{{WWE}} as a {{Face}} from 1987-1988 as the manager for Wrestling/BamBamBigelow and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff. He died from bladder cancer and pneumonia on March 20, 2011.
