The ferryman for the Evenus river was the centaur Nessus, who transported clients across by carrying them on his back and shoulders. Fernandez's run as one of the Assassins ended less than a year later, after he was unmasked by Jimmy Valiant. In the end, Race recovered and piledrove Humperdink onto a steel chair (an act scripted to allow the "injured" Humperdink to leave the territory). After losing his manager, Fernandez did not stay in the Central States territory for long but instead signed up with Jim Crockett Promotions(JCP). Although Sting eliminated him early, Super Invader's team won the match. His two other notable feuds in the Central States territory were with Manny Fernandez and Harley Race.

The highlight of his run as Super Invader was his appearance at Clash of the Champions XX teaming with Rick Rude, Jake Roberts, and Big Van Vader in an elimination tag team match against Sting, Nikita Koloff, and the Steiner Brothers. The feud culminated some weeks later in a chain match that saw Hercules as the victor. Fernandez was also a featured bodybuilder, appearing in several muscle magazines. Haynes was unable to defend himself and Hercules slapped the full-nelson on and maintained the hold until Haynes passed out. Soon after, he would drop "Hernandez" from his ringname, begin carrying a long steel chain to the ring, and re-emerge with a visibly changed, more-muscular physique. The hero Hercules (or Herakles) is considered both a mighty warrior and a demigod in Greek mythology, according to Herodotus and numerous ancient historians, poets, and playwrights. The couple moved first to Tiryns, where Hercules was to serve Eurystheus for 12 years while he performed his Labors. Hernandez soon found himself floundering in the WWF midcard. The momentum swung back and forth throughout the contest until Haynes clotheslined Hercules over the top rope. In 1982, Hercules joined the NWA Central States territory (which ran out of Kansas City and promoted shows in Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa). By the end of 1992, Ray Fernandez had left WCW and was competing on the independent circuit, as well as overseas. This was the apotheosis, the transformation of Hercules into a god. When Haynes turned to deal with his adversary, Hercules drove the chain into his forehead. The broadcast commentators gave credit to the Warrior for snapping the chain, to the chagrin of Hercules and Heenan. The team also had a series of matches with the Steiner Brothers and made it to the finals of the 1993 Super Grade Tag League where they lost to Keiji Mutoh and Hiroshi Hase. After being unmasked, Fernandez moved on to Bill Watts' Mid-South promotion, where he once again donned a mask. She has been featured by NPR and National Geographic for her ancient history expertise. During the fall of 1988, Bobby Heenan sold Hercules' contract to “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase; DiBiase claimed that in Hercules, he had now purchased his own slave". Haynes promptly answered the challenge and was waiting for Hercules to apply the hold when Heenan appeared to have second thoughts.
