When Wrestling was Golden

Not sure if anyone would care about this


Timeshift turns back the clock to a time when villains wore silver capes, grannies swooned at the sight of bulky men in latex and the most masculine man in the country was called Shirley. In its heyday, British professional wrestling attracted huge TV audiences and made household names of generations of wrestlers from Mick McManus and Jackie 'Mr TV' Pallo to Giant Haystacks and Big Daddy. With contributions from inside the world of wrestling and surprising fans such as artist Peter Blake, this is an affectionate and lively portrait of a lost era of simpler pleasures, both in and out of the ring.

Seem's interesting

Sorry to rub it in but this was a great watch, very informative. Thanks for posting. Some of that footage from the 30s before wrestling was properly governed look absolutely brutal.

Re: When Wrestling was Golden

A mate of mine (Mawson, for those of you who are familiar with my old youtube account) posted the link to this on my wall the other day. I best watch it before it gets taken off iPlayer.

Re: When Wrestling was Golden

Ahh I missed this and all but forgot about it. Will watch it on Youtube sometime soon, seems interesting.

It always amazes me just how popular British Wrestling was on it's own isles at one point.
