Nickname given to John Gotti because he was charged with different crimes multiple times but he was never convicted (before he was finaly convicted). The charges would never stick, hence the name.
The teflon don was responsible for the begining of the end of the gambino crime family because of his big mouth.

john gotti. one the worst members of the la costra nostra. f.b.i. got more information about the mafia and self incriminating evidence than another non-informant mafia member in history. even sammy "the bull" gravano kept his mouth shut about the crime family and anything self incriminating when he was surveillanced. amazingly enough sammy turned himself in and ratted gotti out. john was charged with RICO and was to serve a life sentence until his death in prison, the 61-year-old Gotti died on June 10, 2002 from complications of head and neck cancer.
john gotti went from the dapper don to the telfon don to an embassament of the gambino crime family.

The biggest rat in the history of the mafia also known as Jhon Gotti. The police an F.B.I got more information out of him than any other mafia or non mafia member.
Jhon Gotti set the mafia back 100 years who knows how long Joseph Massino will set them back
