Crusher Mason I remember seeing this crowd puller on many occasions mainly in the South of England very especially at the Royal Pier Southampton ,but a couple of little stories that stick in my mind concerning Butch as he was when i first saw him. I can remember seeing Buthc Mason on a fairground wrestling booth in Basingstoke (he did not do his challenger that evening too much good) and then often saw him around many other venues. I honestly believe he would have been a greater name had he concentrated on the Crusher Mason personna for I can remember going to the wrestling in Llandudno on holiday in the eighties ,two promotions in a week the first and independent (it may have been a Brian Dixon evening starring none other than The Mighty Chang,maybe i should not have it but I could not resist shouting 'Come on Crusher on his entry to the ring ,got a very 'funny' look from the man himself.if only he had let it go as Crusher he would have been up there with all the big boys and seen much more often.The other promtion was a Joint Promtion with Brian Crabtree as MC but I can't remember much more about that evening. Seeing the name Mickey Sullivan show up on some of the posters he always was a favorite in the south but one evening in Basingstoke he appeared twice in one evening once sa himself and for the last bout of the night with a mask on under a oriental name but all his trademark moves were there
Still those were the days
