So which big stars never featured in a Daddy tag match? We often saw the likes of Sid Cooper involved but was Jimmy Breaks in any? And Tally Ho Kaye?  How about Brian Maxine?  I believe neither Pat Roach or Adrian Street were ever involved. Am guessing that McManus and Logan must have been at least once. Both Breaks and Maxine were champions, so would they have refused to do it? Or am I just wrong? Just thought of another, Johnny Kincaid.

Adrian Street was reported to have said any wrestler who had any pride about himself, i.e. Refused to job, would never have faced Big Daddy, but in the 1970s I saw Pat Roach meet him (in his Shirley Crabtree days) in a singles match, and defeat him by two falls to one. And hardly anybody but Kendo Nagasaki was beating him around that time..

McManus and Logan did do one Big Daddy tag match, with Young David as the blue-eye in peril at the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington Spa on TV in 1979.


Breaks did something wierd - depsite being a hated heel, he was pictured shaking hands with Daddy and Tony St Clair for winning a trophy tournament.  Which would be like Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior being pictured congratulating the Nasty Boys for winning the WWF World Tag Team title at WM7 in 191

Yes, but Big Daddy wasn't involved which is rather the point of this thread.

I can recall just the once Mad Mac, Pete partnered Tibor Szackacs at Liverpool stadium against Thundercloud & Whitecloud, think Pete was replacing Bill Howes.

British wrestling - great characters but the plot was always a bit of a mystery.

It's not just you, Sir. To clarify: I can't recall Pete Roberts ever being involved in a Daddy tag match.

Or on (the) piste. In any event, a worthy cause, Sir.

I think Frank and Tom are writing about tag matches in general rather than specifically ones involving Big Daddy

Hi all. It's been a while since I contributed but I'm back now. (blame the age). I did see Jim Breaks in a tag against Big Daddy and Peter Collins. He stood in for Ian Muir and partnered Tony Walsh. No surprise there. This was at a sports centre near Leigh called Howe Bridge in 83/4. Can't think the promoters would've put Catweasle in a tag with him or Kevin Coneeley or Mr Kellett.

"Unholy Alliance" was Naggers and Steve Viedor in 1977.  Nagasaki and Daddy was really just your standard Naggers heel team, not unlike Kendo & Paul Neu in 1993.

"Unholy Alliance" was also used for Bridges and Rocco.

I think it has been mentioned elsewhere but the Iron Greek wanted nothing to do with Daddy as he felt it would ruin his legacy. Also I wonder if it is worth considering if former partners and opponents that tag with him when he had some credibility would have done so in his more pantomine days when the Daddy roadshow was in full swing.
