S: Society Boy - Solak

Wrestling Heritage A - Z

Society Boy
Dressed to impress, Society Boy (otherwise  Brian Craig-Radcliffe) entered the ring wearing bowler hat and umbrella. Here was another Paul Lincoln creation, oft time tag partner of the Wildman of Borneo,  who was a regular feature on independent shows until signed up by Joint Promotions in the autumn of 1964. In the early 1960s he was a familiar figure in Spanish rings, both as a wrestler and as manager of the Wildman of Borneo. We were told of his previous success  "in the city," but assume that was all part of wrestling's mumbo jumbo. We are more inclined to believe an early interest in rugby  and member of the Saracens rugby union team. A tough and rugged seventeen stoner, and stronger than most heavyweights, Brian's lack of respect for the rules did little to endear him to the fans of the 1960s.  

Demon” Al Solak
We didn't see him  but guess a clue lies in the nickname. 1960s worker for the independents, and most likely one of the Jack Taylor men because Mick Collins remembers  him often working on Jack's and Lew Phillips shows. Opponents included Roy LaRue,  Ken Davies, Bill Workman, Worked throughout the 1960s but seems to have disappeared around 1970.
