Marcel Gauthier[1] (July 21, 1928 November 6, 1998) was a Canadian professional midget wrestler who worked as Sky Low Low. He is considered by many to be the greatest midget wrestler of all time.[3]

Professional wrestling career

Known by his midget wrestler persona "Sky Low Low", Gauthier stood just 42 inches tall and weighed 86 pounds.[1] He began wrestling in the 1940s.[1] He made his debut in the Canadian National Wrestling Alliance, and soon claimed the NWA World Midget Championship. He was managed for the bulk of his career by Jack Britton, father of Gino Brito.[4]

Gauthier and Little Beaver squared off in a match for Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and King Farouk of Egypt.[1][4] He was touring with the World Wrestling Federation as late as the 1980s.[1]

One of his gimmicks was an open challenge to any other midget professional wrestlers to beat him in a two out of three falls match for $100.[4] He could also stand on his head without using his hands to balance himself.[2][4]

He had a longtime feud with Farmer Brooks.

Personal life

During World War II, he worked in the tail of an aircraft bomber, fixing rivets.[4] He liked fishing, golfing, and horseback riding.[4] He died on November 6, 1998 from a heart attack.[1][4] He was married at the time of his death.[4] He was posthumously inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2002.[1]
