Prior to wrestling, Archie Gouldie played football with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was cut from the team he so he moved on to professional wrestling. He was trained by Stu Hart in the early 1960s and as was the custom at that time was sent out to garner experience in other territories.
He first traveled to Amarillo and the Central States territories where he picked up the name of the Mongolian Stomper. While in Central States he won several titles before returning to Stampede. He also won a tag team title with Ciclon Negro in the San Francisco territory.
Once back in the Calgary-based promotion he was on a roll. That territory always allowed him to draw decent money and hold titles when he wasn't touring the rest of the country.
Fans in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, the Carolinas, Japan, and many other areas all saw his work in the ring. In several of those promotions he won titles but it was the Central States and Stampede territories where he found the most success.
His career continued until the mid-1990s when he competed for Smoky Mountain Wrestling while simultaneously working for the Knoxville (TN) Sheriff's Department. In 1995 he hung up the boots for good and continued to work for the Sheriff's Department.
