Let’s Go To The Matches #9

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another edition of “Let’s Go To The Matches”.  Now, we’re going to finish up with our tour of the world’s major wrestling styles, with World of Sport.  Starting in the United Kingdom, World of Sport closely mimics boxing in terms of having timed rounds.  There were usually a set amount of rounds, and to win, one must need to notch two pinfalls, two submissions, or one knockout.  So, with that being said, here are some of the more well known names during the World of Sport era of British Wrestling.

Anyone else think that they were wrestling in a mortuary or church? Even the announcer is quiet.

Well, there you have it from our wrestling brethren from across the pond.  Hope you enjoyed the wonderful foray into the World of Sport, until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.
