I remember Willie interviewing Dick the Bruiser and the big villain ripped Willie's hat in two. I think it turned out that Willie had worn that hat for years and years and I don't think he was amused.

Wasn't Hall's a clothing store at one end of a strip mall on Route 4?

Yow, we've all forgotten about Baron Fritz von Raschke! He'd goose-step around the ring with his shaved head and knee-high black boots before whaling on the "jobber" of the day. Gee, wonder what his character was supposed to represent?

They had one on Route 4 in Hamilton, one on Reading Rd. north oy Bypass 50 and one on Turfway Rd. in Florence. There may have been others.

Okay, does anyone remember Bowling for Dollars? I think the skipper himself aka Glenn Ryle was the MC. That was a bid thing as one of my friends brothers aspired to be a winner on the show. I don't think he ever made it.

I remember Rinks and I remember Zayers. Also wasn't there a "Cash Amburgee" or something like that? I think he used to sell cars live during some of the Saturday movie matinees on WXIX. I believe that was on just before the Outer Limits would come on. ".....do not try to adjust your television, the problem is not in your set...." Frightened the "bigeebees" out of me!
