By about 1977 I was tiring of wrestling , The Kings Hall was more and more empty , I thought some of the bills were poor although some fabulous wrestlers were coming through at the lower weights. Kendo's own TV unmasking did not go down well with me , Rocky Wall , another hero had gone , others had gone on too long and finally I switched off.
It was quite a few years before I found out that the Kings Hall had been pulled down. I thought Kendo had retired as well , only to find out much later that he came back. Over the years I went the advertising was very basic , it had actually been much better in the 1930's. And from over 100 shows a year under Dick and Jessie Rogers it seems the once a week that I saw had dropped off to just big events. At least , thats what the Evening News suggests.
I was not an 80's fan and in fact had been looking in on USA stuff in the late 80's.
Always open minded though , today I am pleased to bring you some of the final bills , quite well advertised before the closure. Make of them what you will.
If you want to keep the video , the link lasts for one week. ( My alternative to a gallery)
