Before wrestling from America started to be shown in the UK we only had one show a week which was at 4.00pm on Saturday afternoons. Commentator Kent Walton always greeted us with "Welcome, Grapple fans !" What he should have been saying was "Welcome,gullible idiots." Despite claims to the contrary it was blatantly fixed and sometimes not very well. What I always found amusing were all the old grannies in the front row who would start hitting the heel (unpopular wrestler) with their handbags if he got thrown out of the ring. Archive footage can still be found on the wrestling channel (427) in the UK and it is sometimes amusing to watch for half an hour for that unforgettable trip down memory lane.
