With his impressive physique and handsomely distinguished facial features, Jim Londos became known as the "Golden Greek" of professional wrestling. Londos defeated several mat greats during his career including Ed "Strangler" Lewis, Jim Browning, and Bronko Nagurski. It has also been reported that Londos would purposely challenge any wrestler who he believed was uglier than he was, a strategy that generated tremendous crowd reactions. "The Golden Greek" would officially retire in 1946 only to emerge from retirement for a match against Primo Carnera in Chicago in 1950.
