There is no doubt that the hottest feud in the history of Puerto Rican wrestling history is the feud between Carlos Colón and Abdullah The Butcher. This feud was very wild and bloody during the late 70's, the whole 80's and early 90's, so it covers three decades.

How did it begin? Both wrestlers began this feud in Canada in the early 70's, when Carlos worked for the Stu Hart promotion, Stampede Wrestling, under the name Carlos Belafonte. It was believed, at the time, that Belafonte was his real last name, until he get married with his wife, Nancy Coates, where the last name Colón was revealed. In Canada, and before moving to Puerto Rico, Carlos had feuds with several wrestlers, including Abdullah, but this part of his career is an almost forgotten one and finding information about it was a real assignment.

Abdullah debuted in Puerto Rico in 1978 and was basically an instant hit. Carlos Colón was the top babyface of the promotion, then named Capitol Sports Promotions, and was attacked by a wild Abdullah The Butcher. At the time, Carlos was the Puerto Rican champion and quickly a feud for the title began. They traded this title several times. The first one was on November 18, 1978, when Abdullah defeated Carlos Colón (who was wearing this title for the second time) and his title reign was ended by Pampero Firpo 8 months later (in a heels match). During his reign he was a monster heel. Abdullah regained this title for the second time from Carlos (who defeated Firpo) on December 15, 1979. Carlos won the title back a month later (January 12, 1980, but was held up on January 5, 1980). Abdullah defeated Carlos for the last and third time (for this title) on July, 1981, and Colón regained it back on September 26, 1981.

During this war, Abdullah and Carlos faced each other in some classic battles. One included a match for the title on September 26, 1981, that Carlos won, in which Carlos injured Abdullah The Butcher's knee, in a wild brawl. This match was a classic since it was a barbed wired match. 

On June 1982, Carlos wrestled once again against Abdullah The Butcher in a match with the stipulation in which the loser leaves Puerto Rico in a barbed wire match (they love this matches). Abdullah lost and a month later reappeared, this time billed as the WWC WORLD champion and lost the title to Carlos Colón in July 24, 1982.  More...
