Destroyer vs Patterson 1983

The 'Original Intelligent Sensational Destroyer!' is how the legendary masked man demanded to be billed during his later tenure in Toronto in 1979-83.

Every bout was a wrestling clinic. He was well respected among the Toronto faithful vying for the local Canadian Title and also managing a WWWF title shot vs Bob Backlund in Jan 1980.

The shots are from Louisville NY June 1983 as the Quebec promotion crosses the border. He had battled with Patterson throughout Quebec 82-83 and Patterson goes for the mask in the last pic. Greg Oliver has a pic of Mr Beyer - unmasked ! - from the 2010 CAC at Slam Wrestling
