Who looked most threatening,not who was the most threatening in your opinion.

Thats not to say they weren't

Who would you not have liked to meet in a dark alley.

Well, Bill, I remember worrying about asking Buster Martin for his autograph, so I guess that's a good guide!  (In the end he was lovely, haha)


Iron Jaw Jow Murphy looked a bit of a thug.


Ted Heath another.

Hi Bill,

For me this has to be Dominic Pye, although after saying this, he was really a good guy to talk to.

Cheers

Bill Howes, then I got talking to him one night at ringside, he was a nice chap! But always seemed to have a bit of the "devil" in him..

Well i would not have wanted to meet any of the BIG men in an alley, Haystacks, Kirk, Muir, Scrubber Daly, Crusher Mason.

That scowl of Sid Coopers was always great. As a youngster, I remember thinking Adrian Street was bigger than I had imagined when I walked passed him once.

Also a couple of guys at my local venue told me how intimadated they were by Dave Bond one time when he waited outside for them after they had given him a lot of verbal!

"Bully" Boy Muir looked really threatening in "civvies" but sadly was not very effective inside the ring. How about Ski Hi Lee?

Mal Kirk always looked like he hated everyone and would quite happily hurt everyone of us. A true master in the art of villainy

I always thought the The Ghoul with his huge bulk and grotesque grin under that grubby white mask was very frightening.

Not quite a dark alley, but I remember Scrubber Daley chasing a fan into the dressing room after the fan threw a bottle at him. The episode was written up in the local paper. According to Mac, he was summoned to appear in court and was told it could be a custodial sentence, but the other fella didnt show in court.

Mal Kirk always looked like a bloke not  to be messed with.  Jim Moran was scary in real life, I ran into him a few times when he worked on nightclub doors in Sheffield.

Doug Joyce looked a real villain and Hans Streiger was to be feared!

Agreed on Hans Streiger, beancounter, heard him described in James Morton's excellent book "fighters" as "a terrorist in his area". One you'd definitely want on your side in a fight!
