**UPDATE (4/15/2015)** Here is a first-hand experience of Jason the Terrible from Google+ user David Zak, who commented on this story:
“I use to go to stampede wrestling in Edmonton with my brother, and when Jason The Terrible came to the ring I would almost sh*t my pants. I was terrified of Jason, and i was just a kid then. Maybe that had something to do with me being terrified of him. I just wanted to share that with you.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Just…let that sink in….Okay? So, yeah. Jason the Terrible was the Friday the 13th wrestler and wrestled in a hockey mask, which probably shouldn’t have been legal (copyrights, trademarks, and all that jazz). It’s kinda hard to punch a guy wearing a protective mask, PLUS his finishing move was a flying headbutt WITH THE MASK ON. Jeez, I guess you could get away with ANYTHING in Canada outside of swerving a member of the Hart wrestling family. Maybe take a cue from the indy circuit and bring a fake, invisible and imaginary gun to the ring and shoot your opponents. It’s fine; make sure you apologize to them for fake shooting them afterwards.
