My Location
Good news for those wrestling fans then, I remember Jackie Pallo, Mick McMaunus, the Royal brothers (Bert Royal and Vick Faulkner), Kendo Nagasaki, then later Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks. I even remember ?Tiny Carr, the diminuative referee, shame it all went down the tubes.

Mind you, I do find it amusing how they now call something Free To View, when the only way you can view it is with a subscription card!!!! Is it just me who finds this a contradiction?
