Hi there, I am currently listing on ebay a magnificent and large collection of signed promo cards and photographs and similar relating to Wrestling and dating from the 1950's upto the 1980's. I hope some of the images and wrestlers would be of interest to you and your readers to look at if not actually to buy. They are listed in the Wrestling category and my ebay username is horse-racing-Richard many thanks for the helpful information your site supplies.

My father, Jim Burnett, wrestled in the UK during the thirties and forties. I found the short bio on this website and would like some more information on his life and career. He died when I was young so I have little knowledge on this time of his life

This site brings back many memories from when I use to go with my mother and sister to see the wretling at Torquay Town Hall. We use to go in the early 80's and had the pleasure of meeting many of the stars either at the venue, down at the Castle Bar or a few who kipped over at my sisters before going on to their next venue. Enjoying the wrestling profiles and seeing the photo's - top site and have recommended it to a few others.

I have participated in this wonderful site for sometime now, mainly through the forum. This is a site for memories, dreams, opinions and much more. The diversity of the participants on the forum is something to behold. Ordinary fans like me, long winded "experts" who seem to have had access to everything "wrestling" and those, bless 'em, who truly believe it was not a work! Our thanks must go to Hack and Anglo who keep things going week in, week out. Keep it up lads, there are many more three counts to come yet.

I would love to thank this brilliant original site and it's members / I have been a fan of British Wrestling since I was a young boy. Wrestlers never seem to get the credit that other sportsmen and sportswoman get. I have enormous respect for Professional Wrestlers.they put their bodies on the line for our entertainment /Wrestling is an art form in itself /Wrestlers travel almost 360 days a year on the road.Wrestling is also a sport which deserves more credit. Wrestlers theirselves are titans /warriors with technical ability /stamina /fitness/ etc / I'm so happy that the British wrestling scene here and abroad is starting to explode again as British Wrestling is back on the map /and the titans of the past and present are getting the respect they all deserve. Just a quick hello and I am so privileged to be on this site.many thanks Dodthecrusher

Once again guys Ive sat down and flicked through the pages of your/our web site and all those memories of the Saturday nights come flooding back.
As a teenager standing on the stage getting close to the wrestlers and collecting autographs (where did they all go?)
Then as time went by sitting in our own seat booked in advance, months in advance oh heady days.
Made so many friends, had some wonderful nights out, Thanks to all those wonderful professionals that meant so much to us then.
thank for a great web site.

What a good site. A great deal of my youth was spent religiously watching these guys live at our local venue (we once had Scrubber Daly land on our laps in the front row and he was incredibly apologetic) and on a Saturday afternoon on ITV : This site has brought the memories flooding back ! Everyone has their all time top 3 wrestlers : Mine have to be Mark Rocco, Marty Jones and Dave Finlay, in that order. What are other readers favourite top 3 ?

Hi,
I am delighted to have found your website. I am approaching that special birthday (60) where one does much reflecting and looking back on childhood memories. I was immersed in the world of wrestling as my late father was Jack Jefferson/Sean O'shea of North Western Promotions. So many of the names you have featured were familiar to me. Sadly I have few photographs to show ( surprising as Dad was a keen amature photographer) I would to have site of a poster or two that have also been lost along the way. So once again well done to Wrestling Heritage for all the work you have done thus far. I hope that you can continue to grow.

Interested in your hotmail address (the riot squad) My father Pasquale Salvo along with Peter Rann were always billed as such....My father was also always billed as Anglo Italian Coincidence? I guess so...Very good site brings back memories of a lot of personalities I was lucky enough to mix with as a nipper.....The envy of all my schoolmates

Good Morning Team

So great to have a special section on the Old Timers of Professional Wrestling. I am a big Fan of the British Scene especially the Pre War Years. But Post War there have been many Great Heavyweights, one of whom settled in New Zealand Robert Bruce former Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion. Keep up the excellent work on Wrestling History!!!

This site is real social history to many people and i for one are glad for the memories that you have evoked in us all. I have taken a lot of youngsters who i work with and have introduced them to your site and have spent many hours talking about the hay days before the over the top new 'Show biz' wrestling culture.

Never let it be said that this site does not open doors. I first came upon this site by accident when I was trying to locate an old wrestling mate of mine. I never found my old mate but what I did find was a whole new experience growing out of my past that I thought was quite finished. Sounds dramatic? Read on. Since Signing on the Wrestling Heritage dotted line, I have attended the funeral of the late and great Mick Mc Manus, Met up with many past wrestling friends, Been encouraged to meet up with them at least once a year at the reunion and been given the enthusiasm to write a book ( Which, thanks to Hack and Anglo) is doing very nicely which, not only gave me great pleasure in writing it but I hope, pleasure to others in the reading. Yes it's true. I might not have found my old mate but being a proud member of this happy group has certainly given me a whole new concept to a past and memorable career. Thank you to all concerned.

Was introduced to this site when I sold some wrestling memorabilia to Hack.

As I surfed the site I gradually got interested in the old days again and in particular the wrestlers who came before my time.

And now it is great fun just looking them all up.

Many thanks for all the time you put into this program. My name is Staal du Plessis from South Africa. I travelled with most of the UK boys that visited our country between 1968 and 1986. I am still in daily contact with the few local boys that are still alive. During those years Pro Wrestling in RSA were tops and the houses were full and sold out. After this period wrestling took a serious knock and turned into a circus.
We just had our 24th Re-union attended by 25 people.
If any of the boys who visited our country would like to come in contact with some of the boys in our country they can contact me at
[email protected] or on my mobile +27 82 883 3168.
All I can remember about Killer Kowalski is that he was a vegetarien with very strange eating habbits.

Please keep up the good work.

Hi Hack & Anglo,

Just want to say thanks again for this fabulous website.

I finally found an old wrestling poster with myself and others including Bob Sherry appearing in Morecombe 8th July 1964!
After some years of searching the internet, the answer came from Raymond Plunkett from your website!

Thanks again and keep up the good and valuable work.

Cheers
