This native son of the Isle of Malta was partial to entering the ring with a cape slung over his shoulder, indicating that somewhere in the distant
past there was a hint of royal blood.
But when the bell rang, there was nothing suave about Baron Mikel Scicluna, as he frequently victimized opponents with a roll of coins.
Only rarely did the referee ever catch on to Scicluna's deceptions. As a tag team wrestler, he won WWE's United State tag team title with Smasher
Sloan in 1966, then the WWE tag team championship with King Curtis Iaukea six years later.
In between, Scicluna toppled Spiros Arion for the Australian championship, and established himself as a recurrent threat to Bruno Sammartino and Pedro
Morales during their title runs.
