from Wikipedia on Mr. Wrestling II/Johnny Walker:
John Francis Walker September 10, 1934-June 10, 2020 is an American retired professional wrestler, better known by the ring name Mr. Wrestling II. He is best known for his appearances with Championship Wrestling from Florida and Georgia Championship Wrestling in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Walker, as Wrestling II, became an immediate top draw and legend for the Georgia territory, leading to ten reigns as the Georgia Heavyweight Champion. During Walker’s time in Georgia as Wrestling II, he was considered one of the top five most popular wrestlers in the United States. He also attracted a high-profile fan in Jimmy Carter, at the time the governor of Georgia…

Jimmy Carter, the governor of Georgia and later president of the United States during Wrestling II’s 1970s heyday, considered him to be his favorite wrestler, as well as his mother’s favorite.

Walker was invited to Carter’s presidential inauguration, but in the end declined the invitation. The United States Secret Service insisted that Walker appear unmasked for security reasons. Due to his popularity at the time under the mask, he couldn’t justify the possible ramifications of his identity being exposed.

Wrestling II did, however, on several occasions enjoy a private audience with Lillian Carter(Jimmy Carter’s mom). He faced scrutiny from the Secret Service on these occasions as well, but they went off without incident.
