Random Ad - Live Wrestling (1960's)

Click to Enlarge
This was the hayday of British wrestling with bouts being televised every Saturday afternoon on ITV's World of Sport. As well as Johnny Kwango, I remember enjoying watching Jackie Pallo, Mick McManus and Bert Royal among others going through their routines with commentary by Kent Walton. I only went to one live match and that was in a field behind the Merry Fiddlers in Beacontree Heath and the only name I remember is that of The Blimp.
