    Dale Pierce wrote: Woody Farmer had a longrunning with Tito Montez in Arizona, meeting in many gimmick bouits such as lumberjack bouts, cage bouts and other encoutners, where he kept running out of the ring to the dressing room as he was about to lose. He even climbed out of the cage (In Az. cage bouts usually ended only when someone was pinned, so going “over the top” was meaningless). Finally Montez won a bout where they were handcuffed together in the ring. Woody Farmer later became a top baby in Phoenix when he was turned on by partner Jody Arnold and launched into a new feud with him.


Farmer, like Pepper Gomez, took pride in his cast-iron stomach muscles and would occasionally allow fans to punch him in the stomach as he tightened his muscles, stopping their fists dead. As one fan commented, “It was like hitting a brick wall.”
