British wrestling history has a name - Heritage
Wrestling Heritage celebrates the glorious days of British professional wrestling

between the years 1930 and 1988.

Sometimes we just want to do a bit more. We have extended tributes of dozens of wrestlers active between 1930 and 1988.

The Shining Stars are generally the men who were the most famous, though even that's a matter of opinion. Personality Parade are a collection of big names, our personal favourites, and those with a good story to tell. The Top Wrestlers of the 1930s are just what it says on the tin. Former wrestlers or family members are invited to get in touch.
