The photo above came from the December 13, 1975 edition of the Courier-Journal. The caption read: "Greg Embody, left, became Coyote Calhoun when he was hired from a Knoxville, Tenn. radio station by smiling WAKY program director, who chose the name."

Coyote Calhoun apparently had a death wish in 1976.

Coyote Calhoun in the ring before his match with Jerry Lawler. Bob Moody provides the details: "Coyote had bragged for weeks that he could beat Jerry Lawler because he knew the 'Bohemian Alligator Holt.' He made it sound like some highly secret and deadly wrestling move. On the night of the match Coyote and Lawler made their entrances, followed by a hooded wrestler with 'Bohemian Alligator Holt' on his shirt. The referee, Paul Morton, ruled that Lawler had agreed to wrestle Coyote AND Holt, so it was two against one. Holt started strong, but faded. When he tried to tag Coyote, Calhoun turned his back and waved to the crowd. Finally, Lawler delivered an uppercut that knocked Holt's hand into Coyote -- the rest is history."
