Jack--I'm in the Chattanooga area, & saw some mid '60's results from here where you were here wrestling for Nick Gulas, but, only for a few weeks (can't blame you there!). Saw where you wrestled Chattanooga native Eddie "Graham" Gossett here in "Choo-Choo", also. Any memories of wrestling for Gulas back then, or being in Chattanooga briefly? Local businessman & wrestling tv announcer Harry Thornton helped promote here in Chattanooga, also. Did you wrestle on Chattanooga tv back then? I'm 50 years old now, & was in my mid teens back then, but, wasn't watching the tv show fulltime then-can't recall if I saw you here then, or not.?

This was in Feb.-March of 1966, when you wrestled here in Chattanooga. Records show you had a draw with Eddie Graham here on March 3rd, 1966. Also here some then was Hiro Matsuda teaming with Antonio Inoki, Haystacks Calhoun, Eddie & Sam Steamboat a little, Jackie Fargo, Len Rossi, the Von Brauners & Saul, the masked Medics, Ken Hollis, Tojo Yamamoto & Alex Perez, & Mario Milano.

Inoki wrestled here as Kanji, not Antonio. He & Hiro held the world tag belts here for awhile, had some bouts with Graham & Steamboat, Rossi & Milano, & others

"bumpity bump"!--Jack, hoping you will comment on your brief 1966 stay in Tennessee for Nick Gulas. Thanks!

I'd really rather not....

Let's just say it was invaluable learning experience of all what I didn't want to know about this business.
