 - Mike Rodgers

Lonnie only appeared in the area for special bouts in late 1971 and early 72 spending most of his time in Hawaii. In early 72 a wrestler came to the Northwest who had a big reputation, Bull Ramos. It was said that he could be the most vicious wrestler ever step foot into the Northwest. The question was raised, who was going to meet him? The promotion decided that Lonnie would be the best choice for an opponent.

The first confrontation between Mayne and Ramos was a classic. Ramos was everything he had been billed. The match ended with Ramos breaking Mayne’s arm. Mayne returned to the area full time in March of 72 to seek revenge on Ramos. He chalked up some impressive victories over the likes of the Royal Kangaroos, Jack Armstrong, Masai Ota and even managed to take a few tough decisions over Bull Ramos.

He once again teamed with Tony Borne and became involved in a feud with the Royal Kangaroos, Johnny Boyd and Norman Charles III. On April 17th, Mayne and Borne were able to capture the NW tag belts for a record setting 9th time by beating the Roo’s. They held the titles for about a month before losing them back to the team from down under. After this loss thing became shaky for the popular team, and after a skirmish they split up. Mayne was able to beat Borne in nearly all the following matches they had. Borne countered by bringing in a new protege, a wrestler by the name of The Skull (Bugsy McGraw). In the meantime Mayne went to his former enemy Dutch Savage and they formed a tremendous team and were able to beat the Royal Kangaroos for the tag titles. They cut through teams like Ramos & El Gringo, Skull and Borne, Skull and Ramos, Ramos and Haru Sasaki, Fuji and Sasaki and even went to a full 60 minute draw with the World Tag Champs Lars Anderson & Paul Demarco.

Mayne also wracked up victories over Borne, Jack Bence, Sasaki, Skull in a Mormon Death Match and Ramos in a Apache Strap Match. At the end of 1972 Mayne had an offer to go to the WWWF, so he told the fans he was leaving but that he would be back. He gave up his tag title and headed East.

Lonnie returned for 2 matches in 1973 and 2 more in 1974. In 1975 he came back for a series of matches with the Royal Kangaroos with partners like Jimmy Snuka, Raul Mata and Dory Funk Jr. The tag matches were part of a bounty hunters match that television sponsors had put on the Aussie team. Funk and Mayne made an impressive team but their lack of working together for any length of time hurt them.  More...
