In the early 60′s Jack teamed with Tiny Mills for a wild campaign that still has the fans talking in the Missouri-Kansas area. A series of matches with the Medics for the Central States tag team championship drew quite a few huge crowds. Jack hit his all-time prime teaming with his other teacher, Big K, in Florida in 1967. Pulling an upset the two long-haired mat villains defeated the team of Johnny Weaver and Jim Becker to win the Southern tag team championship. Among other teams they faced while holding the title were Haystacks Calhoun and Eddie Graham, Jose Lothario and Wahoo McDaniel and Harry Smith and Alex Medina. At the present Jack “The Ripper” Daniels has been campaigning in the Midwest and hold victories over such men as Jim Vallen and Kenny Jay.
