Gorilla Monsoon's real name is Robert Marella.















Look at Santino Marella's wikipedia page Judge. And Gorilla Monsoon's. They both say he was named for Gorilla Monsoon.

Tribute? More like an insult. Santino is a joke wrestler.

Lots of people have Marella as their last names though.

Idk, he probably liked monsoon when he was a kid but if you're gonna use people's real names then you should know that Santino marella's real name is Anthony Carelli. So yeah Carelli probably named himself after his fav wrestler when he was a kid or heck it could just be coincidence.

It would be interesting if WWE took the time to note this on Raw and Smackdown. Gorilla Monsoon was an improtant figure in the history of The WWWF and The WWF. Sadly, the last 2 generations of WWE Fans know very little about him.
