 - Mike Rodgers

Ronald Doyle Mayne was born September 12th, 1944 in Fairfax, California. He grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and graduated from the College of Southern Utah. During his time there Lonnie was an All American in Football. As a result the NFL Chicago Bears and the AFL San Diego Chargers were very much interested in Lonnie to play Pro Football for their teams. But after some help and advice from his father Ken who was at that time a professional wrestler himself, Lonnie decided to follow in his footsteps and be a wrestler.

Growing up Lonnie enjoyed hunting and fishing and especially motorcycle riding. He got the sport in his blood early by traveling to the matches with his father at age 12. Lonnie met a man during this time that would greatly influence his life later on. That man was Tony Borne.

Lonnie turned professional at the age of 23 and broke into the game in the Los Angeles area with the help of the late Jules Strongbow. Lonnie then moved his base of operation to the Pacific Northwest which would become his home away from home. This is where Tony Borne came into the picture. Ken Mayne called Borne and asked him to keep an eye on his boy.

After Mayne’s first stay in Oregon he ventured to Hawaii where he proved to be very successful. Lonnie was able to capture the Hawaiian State Heavyweight Championship and the Hawaiian Tag Team Championship with Sweet Daddy Siki. During his stay in Hawaii, Lonnie met such wrestlers as Mad Dog Vachon, Peter Maivia, Sam Steamboat, Jimmy Snuka, Ed Francis, Johnny Barend, King Curtis and Cowboy Frankie Laine. Besides Siki, Lonnie teamed with Ripper Collins, Billy Graham and Gene Kiniski on the islands. 

Next, Lonnie stopped in the British Columbia Territory where he entered a tournament to determine the first Pacific Coast Heavyweight Championship. Mayne made his way to the Championship match but lost via DQ to Mark Lewin. Mayne then returned to Oregon for another successful stay. From here Mayne went to the WWWF. During his 1973 stay Lonnie displayed a behavior that had seldom been seen before. On his interviews he would eat live goldfish, razor blades and even light bulbs. He quickly moved up to the number one spot in challenging for the WWWF title then held by Pedro Morales.  More...
