That is high praise indeed to receive such a plaudit from the legend that is Tony St. Clair, a well deserved plaudit, and likewise pleasing to see a wrestler of Tonys standing publically expressing his gratitude to Colin.

4pm Saturdays on ITV, "Hello grapple fans" courtesy of Mr Walton introduced the action, where the likes of Tony and Colin entertained their public, now that was entertainment, memories eh!!! Is it dusty in here as a tear has come to my eye;)

Thank you for the memories Gentlemen of the squared circle.
