Does anyone else remember when this was on World Of Sport on Saturday afternoons? A good nostalgia trip was had last Thursday on BBC4 with this programme about those days: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01p96ly/Timeshift_Series_12_When_Wrestling_was_Golden_Grapples_Grunts_and_Grannies/
One glaring inaccuracy I noticed though concerned the unmasking of Kendo Nagasaki. In the programme, it showed the 'official' unmasking ceremony, but a few years previously, this happened, without all that pomp & circumstance! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm3t5IeczZI

I used to love watching the wrestling on Saturday afternoons on ITV in the days of Dickie Davies and that superb commentator the late Kent Walton

I expect people might remember with fondness the numerous mutual hostilities on display including those between Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks and between Fitt Findlay and that great wrestler from Oldham Marty Jones

In my younger days I used to attend a fitness club run by Marty and when it comes to fitness I doubt there was anyone fitter at the time - I also learned quite a bit from him about self defence Smile
