I've found about 10 B & W photographs of Charlie Fisher (my father) in the ring and with his brother Author if you would like to add them to dad's collection. I can either scan then (as before) or post them to you. Kind regards, Graham

Thanks so much for this. So much better than American wrestling of the same period. I love the technical stuff and that the crowd is right into it and always well-dressed. All of the televised WoS is simply a treasure for all of us that appreciate highly skilled real looking pro wrestling.

Great to see that this site continues to thrive, the new features are always eagerly awaited and enthrall those who read and contribute to them. Both Hack and Anglo are a credit to the wrestling industry and should be very proud of their contribution to ensure that the glory days of British wrestling are fondly remembered...long may it continue.

I log in regularly and update myself on what is going on. I love this site, and the way it is run. Seeing some old friends comments, and reading comments about them from other people, brings me loads of nostalgia. I hate getting old.

Thanks for the double wammy websites (and newsletter reminder, of course). Have dug in the loft to retrieve stuff I had when I helped out Jack Taylor in the Midlands as a ring-rigger and second back in the 60s and 70s. A lot of dust needs to be blown off!!

Thank you Hack and Anglo-Italian for your two great websites.
I never enjoyed watching wrestling more than at the Connaught Drill Hall, Portsmouth, and subsequently at the Theatre Royal, renamed the "Royal Arena" by Jim Smith, the local promoter. Steve Logan was rightly billed "Always Popular in Portsmouth" and invariably won or was disqualified!
I am sorry to learn that he declined in retirement. I believe he was involved in a talent agency called "Uglee" supplying those with similar boats to film and theatre.

I see I have to leave a message if I'm to continue to receive your newsletter, so here it is. I discovered your site a good few years ago now and it was a revelation. I've been a fan of UK wrestling since I was about seven way back in 1960 and I used to watch it on TV on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. I was lucky enough to have an uncle who took me to my first wrestling show at the Granada, Edmonton when I was 12; a Paul Lincoln promotion featuring Judo Al Hayes, Docker Don Steadman and many others who feature on your site, and after that, throughout my early teens I was a regular patron of the North London venue to see the likes of the Zebra Kid, McManus and Logan,the Wildman of Borneo (who scared the bejesus out of me), and so on. There was a certain magic about the shows there - the lights, the sounds and the sheer excitement of it that had me going back time and time again.
I've been a writer since my early twenties and a few years ago I embarked on a series of crime novels set in the late fifties, early sixties - the Jack Callum Mysteries, and one of my coppers moonlights as a pro wrestler and works for Paul Lincoln and as far as research for the novels goes, your site is an incredible resource, filling in the gaps in my memory and providing some interesting background detail. I would be bereft if I stopped receiving your newsletter, so please keep sending it. In the future I intend to post more on your site. I've got a few interesting stories to tell after almost a lifetime of watching wrestling and getting to know some wresters from that specific era, like how I got to know Kalman Gaston when he, like me worked in the jewellery trade and how he would greet me by clamping me in a friendly headlock - boy he was strong, even in his fifties. I'll write more when I've finished the fifth Jack Callum book, but for now, back to work.

great site. I feel sorry for those 'youngsters' who think that wwe is proper wrestling. I reckon any of our heavyweights (in their prime) would beat any wwe 'star' because he learned the right wayold school wrestling.

How amazing that this site has taken off so well that it isn't just the fans that enjoy it but also the wrestlers! Before I found it, I assumed that those names I had followed for so many years were consigned to the past, but on Wrestling Heritage they have re-appeared. Sadly not all are still with us, but WH keeps their memory alive...

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.

Thanks for bringing it all back again and also teaching me new things I never knew

As everyone says and I agree "what a great interesting site this is" It reminds me of the great days at the Pavillion and Assembly Hall in Worthing in the early sixties!! Kiwi Kingston,Zebra Kid,Frank Hurley and Joe Cornelius to mention just a few!! GREAT DAYS!!
