Super Crazzy
SUPER CRAZZY REAL NAME: Francisco Pantoja Islas.

HEIGHT: 5'8".

DEBUT: 1991.

Extreme Luchador Super Crazzy has managed to make a big splash in ECW since his debut in late 1998. One of the most innovative high flyers in pro wrestling today, Crazzy was a mainstay on the Mexican independent circuit for years, before signing with the AAA promotion in 1995.

From there, he moved on to the Promo Azteca promotion where booker Konnan made him the focus of the cruiserweight division. It was while working in Promo Azteca that Crazzy had a legendary feud with Venum Black, another daredevil Luchador. The feud culminated in a spectacular mask vs hair match on March 6th in the city of Naucalpan where the two put on an incredible exhibition of the Lucha Libre style before Crazzy took the match and mask of Venum Black.

ECW fans have been deprived of world-class Lucha Libre action ever since the departure of Rey Misterio Jr, Juventud Guerrera and Psicosis to WCW in 1996. Fortunately, Super Crazzy's matches with countrymen Mosco de la Merced and Antifaz del Norte have quenched that thirst.

His feud with Japanese sensation Yoshihiro Tajiri has been one of the best of 1999 as the two have combined the stiff working style of Japanese Puroresu with the speed and grace of the Lucha Libre style to put on some of the best matches in the U.S.

Crazzy first gained exposure in the U.S. competing as Super Loco as part of the WWF's tournament to crown a WWF Light Heavyweight champ. He has competed on several tours of Japan and although he wrestles a full time schedule in ECW, he still manages to wrestle periodically in Mexico.
