Francis "Frank" Patrick Hoy (19 October 1934 – 21 April 2005) was an Irish born Scottish professional wrestler who wrestled variously as Wild Angus, Angus Campbell, Black Angus Campbell or Rasputin (whilst wearing a wrestling mask). Although he spent most of his life in Scotland, Hoy was born in Enniskillen in Northern Ireland.

Biography

Wearing a long black beard and a kilt, Hoy wrestled as a heel, mostly in Europe (where he featured regularly on ''World of Sport'' in the United Kingdom during the 1970s), and managed one of his greatest achievements in 1978 when he captured the European Union Heavyweight Championship. Hoy also wrestled in North America, initially with Stampede Wrestling and later in Central States Wrestling, where from around 1970 to 1973 he was a regular performer under the management of Percival A. Friend. Here his most notable feuds were against Buck Robley and Ox Baker. He also wrestled in Japan, including a notable 45-minute draw in 1978 at the Hakodate City Gym, Hokkaidō featuring Billy Robinson and himself against Dory Funk, Jr. and Terry Funk. In later life Hoy ended his involvement with wrestling and, according to Harley Race, worked as a park ranger in Scotland. He died in his home town of Stranraer in 2005. His son, Steve Casey, was also a professional wrestler.
