Juan Kachmanian , better known as Pampero Firpo, is a retired Argentine professional wrestler originally from Buenos Aires.

Having been trained by Rudy Dusek, he made his debut in 1953 and wrestled variously as Ervan the Armenian, Ivan the Terrible, The Missing Link, The Great Pampero and the Wild Bull of the Pampas, as well as his most famous alter-ego of Pampero Firpo . [*] An early pioneer of Hardcore wrestling, Kachmanian usually wrestled as a heel, although he would go on to have a run as a face after being fireballedby The Sheik. [*] Other notable feuds in his career would include Nick Bockwinkel, Alberto Madril and Apollo Jalisco. [*]

Amongst the titles he held in his career were the NWA World Tag Team Championship (Texas version), the NWA United States Heavyweight Championship (Detroit version), the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship and the NWA Hawaii Heavyweight Championship [*] as well as being the inaugural holder of the NWA Americas Heavyweight Championship. [*] Using the bear hug and the El Garfio as his signature moves Kachmanian popularized the drawn-out catchphrase 'ohhh yeah!' which would later become associated with Randy Savage. [*] He retired in 1986 and has since worked for the United States Postal Service in San Jose, California. [*]
