John "Johnny" Walker (born in Charleston, South Carolinamarker), better known as Mr. Wrestling II, was an Americanmarker professional wrestler. As Mr. Wrestling II, Walker was one of the most popular wrestlers in the Florida and Georgia areas in the 1970s and early 1980s. He is considered one of the greatest American wrestlers not to win a world title - masked or not.

Some of Walker's most notable feuds involved The Assassin, The Spoiler, The Masked Superstar, Jack Brisco, Buddy Colt, Magnum T.A., Jimmy Garvin, Tim Woods, Minnesota Wrecking Crew, Larry Zbyszko, and The Road Warriors. Mr. Wrestling II, later in his career, was known to use his "running knee lift" to great effect. See The Birth of Mr Wrestling ll

Walker's wife, Olivia, was a talented seamstress and costume maker. Many of her clients were country music performers including Porter Wagoner. During an interview, Ric Flair stated that many of his robes were made by her.

Former President Jimmy Carter (a fellow Georgian) called Mr. Wrestling II his favorite wrestler (as well as his mother's favorite). In fact, Walker was invited to Carter's inauguration, but declined the invitation upon learning that he would have to unmask.
