Archie played football for the CFL, but found his niche as a professional wrestler known as the Mongolian Stomper.  As one of the biggest stars to ever appear in Calgary, Archie held the Stampede version of the North American heavyweight title a total of eight times between 1968 and 1984.  He was a main event wrestler in every territory in which he appeared before settling down in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Archie tells his story here for the first time anywhere.
