Brian Maxine turned Professional Wrestler since 1964 and at one time he used to be a boxer with his nose broken also five years later in 1969 he beat Alan Sergeant for The Welterweight Title and two years later at Wolverhampton in June 1971 he won The Middleweight Title over Clayton Thompson and The Great Contest.

He is A Rule Bender as well with people boo at him because they don't like him at all with his infamous leg roll submission and he always wins and few years later he changed his style of wrestling and become a blue eye instead of a heel or villian.

Signed to EMI Records as The Counrty & Western Singer and he made The LP Ribbon is The Stainless Steele since 1975.

Brian Maxine is The Great Original Professional Wrestler icon.

I remember once that Brian Maxine actually beat the late Mick McManus in a televised bout. It was an awesome match. You did not often get two 'villains' matched against each other. I would sell my flat to get a copy of the tape!

I think that was the start of his blue eye phase. McManus beat him on tv for an eliminator for the british heavymiddleweight belt but Maxine got hs revenge when defending his own brit middleweight title

Brian got the worst ( or maybe the best!) heat I think I've ever seen for a heel at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow. I'm almost certain that he was fighting Kung Fu. and went so over the top with his rule bending that a chair was thrown at him (maybe more than one!) and the ring was surrounded by irate fans, to the extent that security and other wrestlers had to escort him from it!

Wonderful stuff!

I remember seeing Bian Maxine in a match with Honey Boy Zimba.  It was around 1979 in Torquay  Maxine tried all his tricks but Zimba´s size and strength were too much.  In the nd Maxine walked off and lost the match.  Regarding Maxine v McManus; I don´t remember that match on TV but would love t see it.

I was at the Royal Albert Hall in the Spring of 1974 and saw Brian ' Gold Belt ' Maxine beat Mick McManus with a Backbreaker Submission and can also recall the Crowd actually cheering for Mick in that Bout. The Main Event on that Card should have been for the British Heavyweight Title between the then holder, Albert ' Rocky ' Wall and Steve Veidor. Sadly, Wall was absent on that night, so Mike Marino stepped in and agreed to Wrestle the scheduled 15 Rounds in which was a great Contest which i think that Steve won.Also, during a break between Bouts, Ian 'Bruiser ' Muir was introduced to the Crowd for the first time by the MC.

Cheers,

Mark.
