Wrestling Heritage A - Z




Mick Sullivan



Mick Sullivan is remembered as one of those skilled support workers who made wrestling so credible. On numerous occasions discussions of the most under rated wrestlers have included Mick's name. Mick trained in Portsmouth at the gym of Big Bruno Elrington, alongside his friend and mentor Danny Quinn and John Kowalski. He turned professional in the late 1960s, initially working for the independent promoters.


In the 1970s he was a popular worker for top promoters such as Jackie Pallo and Independent Joint Promotions, against top class opposition that included Tony Scarlo, Jon Cortez and Al Miquet. Mick went on to work for Joint Promotions, most famously losing to Steve Grey at the Royal Albert Hall in September, 1981.


On an international level Mick took part in a tour of Zimbabwe.


In August 2018 he was inducted into the British Wrestlers Reunion Hall of Fame.
