A drag my puny scanner can't handle these giant wrasslers from the past, but then the ring couldn't hold them either. It is nice that Junior built this colorful collection, as he most certainly was watching them perform in black and white.
Of course Gorgeous George is here, down in the lower right corner of one page with blond hair but black eyebrows. The star of the Golden age of Wrestling and the first to use music to mark his entrance. Before the fight, George would have the ring sprayed with Chanel number 10 ("why be half safe?") he said. His first TV appearance was in 1947. He sadly died at age 48, a turkey farmer and lounge owner at the time, of liver problems.
The others, which you can see part of, include The Great Moto, Farmer Don, Ivan Rasputin, Nanjo Singh and his Cobra Deathlock, Max Marek, Poffo, Lord Blears, Drake, Ruff, Cyclone Anaya, and two pictures of Tarzan White!
