Tolos during the 1950s and 60s, was part of the Canadian Wrecking Crew with Chris Tolos. He also has a brief managerial career in Herb Abrams' Universal Wrestling Federation as well managing The Beverly Brothers and Mr. Perfect for a short stint in the World Wrestling Federation during 1991, replacing Perfect's former manager Bobby "the Brain" Heenan then moving into a broadcaster's role.
The run proved unsuccessful as Mr. Perfect lost his Intercontinental Title to Bret Hart at SummerSlam. Prior to this match, Hennig suffered a serious back injury, but he still showed up to drop the title to Hart. The injury would sideline Hennig from competition for more than a year afterwards, as he did not return to active competition until the Survivor Series in 1992. With Perfect indefinitely out of action, along with The Beverly Brothers changing their manager to The Genius, "Coach" John Tolos disappeared quietly from WWF.
