Default History of Wrestling

Hi -

Tom Jenkins, Frank Gotch, Georges Hackenschmidt, Strangler Lewis, Jim Londos
& Lou Thesz are just some of the names and faces that appear in a FANTASTIC
book I'm selling on E-Bay.

Two of the chapters include the following:

- AMERICAN WRESTLING SINCE 1945 - Thesz and Watson ; 'showmanship and
acrobatics' ; demands of television ; boxers-turned-wrestlers ; popularity
reaches a new peak ; great champions of the '50's and '60's ; villains and
gimmicks ; women wrestlers ; midgets.
- BRITISH & EUROPEAN WRESTLING SINCE 1945 - British boxers-turned-wrestlers
; the sport becomes organised ; tournaments and television ; new stars of
the small screen ; wrestling in Europe.

Go here ( )to view
a 17-second animated GIF (698kb) which provides a good illustrative view of
the book.

View much more info, including loads more chapter details and views of the
cover etc. here;

This really is a great book, and I'd much rather it went to a wrestling

All the best,
