Where are they now
By Sam Betts
|My wrestling career began in the mid to late 50s as did a lot of my mates
who were trying to find
something better than what we had.
My wrestling career continued into the seventies when I retired.
It would be nice to catch up with some of my old wrestling companions, to see how they are and where they are. I've met some great mates in wrestling over the years but am sadly no longer in touch with a lot of them.
Also quite a few are in that big wrestling ring in the sky, God Bless 'Em all
The Junction Gym is still going but I don't get down there any more, but I have great memories of that and all my old wrestling pals.
It would be nice to hear from those of us who are left or even their families.
I'll be 69 in March so don't wait too long, please get in touch
I can be contacted on
This is me
at the old Junction Gym all the other guys are now gone but the good old
gym lives on.......
