I just read a post by Graham Brooks that mentioned Martin Conroy. Martin has certainly not been forgotten during the years and has cropped up from time to time in our memories, always fondly remembered as a referee and MC, occasionally as a wrestler by those of us old enough.
I remember years ago as we established the Martin we loved as MC was the one and the same Cordite Conroy of years ago.
A man who has played a major part in British wrestling history - top class wrestler, first class referee and much loved MC. Not to mention the part he played in the management of Wryton Promotions and bringing so much new blood over from the opposition.
I remember one night at Southport. He'd just gone over to management, must have been getting on a bit and turned up as MC rather than the usual referee. So many comments from the fans that somehow their beloved Martin had let them down and should have been in the ring sorting out the baddies.
Who remembers Martin?
