WRESTLING HERITAGE

British wrestling history 

Multiple Names
A business that thrived on secrets and mystery was never going to make life easy for the followers.
The A-Z contains biographies for more than 2,000 named wrestlers active in Britain between 1930 and 1988.
Things were not always as simple as they seemed as for various reasons some wrestlers used more than one name during the career.
The left hand column lists wrestlers by the name listed in the A-Z and the right hand column various aliases. As always, this work is evolving and we welcome any additions or corrections.
