SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame: Moose Morowski


Moose Morowski
REAL NAME: Stan Mykietowich
275 pounds
AKA: Stan the Moose, Crusher Morowski, The Claw in Vancouver, The Black Avenger


 Moose Morowski made his pro wrestling debut September 2, 1954 at Winnipeg's famous Madison Club when he wrestled Johnny DePaulo.

 He was a regular in Winnipeg over the years, holding the Madison Tag-Team Title six times from 1957-1966.

 In 1968, he started in Stampede as Stan 'The Moose' Mykietowich.

 Morowski also held the Canadian Heavyweight title from 1982-1983, and the Canadian Tag-Team Titles three times.

 Despite what we once had on these pages, he is not the father of Velvet McIntyre.

Thanks to central Canada's leading wrestling expert, Vern May of Canadian Wrestle-Media for help with his bio. To learn more about wrestlers from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Vern encourages you to email him.

Memories

 Ahh Moose Morowski, a big man in his day. One of his favourite sayings (as he flexed his big pythons) "you don't buy these in a drug store!" A good friend of mine's dad knew him very well and he used to tell us about the size of his breakfasts Moose would consume ie: 12 eggs, a pound of bacon, half dozen potatoes and half a loaf of bread! I remember him as a on again off again regular of All Star Wrestling and they usually matched him against the territory's newest bad guy to see if the villian could cut it. I also remember him going to Germany in the early eighties and winning several heavyweight trophies for Canada. He was one of the reasons I was a fan of wrestling in the late 70's early eighties and I hope he is well today. Thanks Moose for the memories!

 Moose was like a real dad to me at All Star Wrestling. He taught me what I needed to know and tested my learning abilities every Saturday in Cloverdale as he clubbed and slammed and beat the hell out of me. But never once was the term POTATO, CROWBAR or STIFF OLD BASTARD ever used by me, and that's because I learned my lessons well and knew enough to NOT give Moose any reason to show me a real POTATO, CROWBAR, or STIFF SHOT. Moose would only say "IT'S GOOD FOR THE BUISINESS KID"
 Thanks to the Moose I had the opportunity to wrestle in south Africa, Austria , And Germany. Also thanks to the Moose I met my lovely wife while on tour overseas.
  Thank you, Moose.
