Dorrel "Dory" Dixon (born February 1, 1935) is a Jamaican retired professional wrestler. He competed in many different National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) affiliates and Mexican promotions, as well as the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). He made his professional wrestling debut in Mexico's Empresa Mexicana de la Lucha Libre (EMLL).

Before becoming a professional wrestler, Dixon was competitive weightlifter and was the winner of the "Mr. Jamaica Body Beautiful" tournament. He was chosen to be a member of the Jamaican weightlifting team in the 1954 Central American and Caribbean Games which was held in Mexico City, Mexico. He fell in love with Mexico and he decided to stay back while the rest of the team left back to Jamaica.[1]

Dixon would also wrestle the WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Buddy Rogers at Madison Square Garden in New York City.[2]
