Tito Santana is a WWE Legend that has the unique distiction of staying a babyface his entire career. He is best known for his appearances with the WWF between 1979 and 1993 (missing part of 1980 and returning in 1983) where he held the WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship and WWF Tag Team Championship and won the 1989 King of the Ring tournament.
He first made his name by winning the World Tag Team Championship with WWE Hall of Famer Ivan Putski in 1979, but that was just the beginning.
During WWE's mainstream renaissance in the mid-1980s, Santana was right there as one of the company's most popular Intercontinental Champions ever. In January 1984, he ended the yearlong reign of Don Muraco, and even managed to regain the gold from Greg Valentine after being dethroned later in the year.
Santana and Hulk Hogan are the only individuals to have competed at each of the first nine WrestleManias, and his battles included wars with the likes of The Funks, The Hart Foundation, Demolition, "The Mountie" and Shawn Michaels. In 1987, he and Rick Martel teamed up to form Strike Force and win the World Tag Team Championships. At the beginning of the 1990s, he would breathe new life into his career by adopting the persona of "El Matador," entertaining a whole new generation of WWE fans.
Santana was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
Tito Santana will be appearing at Niagara Falls Comic Con Saturday and Sunday only.
