Ronald Doyle "Lonnie" Mayne (September 12, 1944 – August 13, 1978) was an American professional wrestler in the 1960s and 1970s who frequently went by the name Moondog Mayne. Mayne wrestled in various NWA territories as well as the WWWF. He died in an automobile accident on August 13, 1978.[2]

Early life[edit]

Born in Fairfax, California, Mayne grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and graduated from the College of Southern Utah where he was an All American in Football. Lonnie's father Ken was a professional wrestler, and Lonnie chose to follow in his father's footsteps and become a professional wrestler as well.[1][3][4][5][6]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Lonnie won his first NWA United States Heavyweight Championship (San Francisco version) by defeating then-champion Pat Patterson on December 29, 1973 in San Francisco. At the time, Lonnie was a "heel" and Patterson was the "good guy". Although the two had a long standing feud- both before and after Lonnie defeated Patterson for the heavyweight belt, they eventually teamed to win the NWA (San Francisco version) tag team title. This occurred on August 8, 1975 in San Francisco when they defeated The Invaders.

During the 1970s, Mayne allied with Oregon wrestler "Tough" Tony Borne, teaming together in tag team bouts and they also wrestled separately. They were initially "bad guys" and later become "good guys", making themselves two of the most popular wrestlers in the Pacific Northwest. During his time in Oregon, Apache Bull Ramos broke Mayne's arm, causing the bone to stick out through the skin.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Mayne died in an automobile crash on August 13, 1978 in Southern California. At the time he was the reigning NWA United States Heavyweight Champion (San Francisco version) for the third time.
