The last time I watched wrestling was in the 1970’s whilst on my regular Saturday afternoon visits to my Grandma’s house for tea. With commentary from the great Kent Walton, she would be transfixed to the screen watching the likes of Mick McManus, Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks. There would be no tea until the last man had been counted out!
I don’t know if wrestling died out for a while, but some years later it seemed to re-appear, with larger than life contestants attired in much bolder costumes. Gone were the plain coloured trunks and leotards with the cut out fronts, and in came lycra leggings, bandanas, and vivid patterned trucks.
When a copy of WWE Kids magazine dropped onto my desk this week, I was eager to find out more.
