I'd like to find out about two wrestlers who are rarely mentioned or written about.
I've seen Puther Khan's name listed all over the internet, but all that is mentioned is that he was
executed by hanging. Does anyone know why he was
executed or anything about his wrestling career?
Lots of words have been written about wrestlers who have died from drugs, suicide or have been murdered,
but it seems like no one wants to talk about this wrestler or his career.
In the WAWLI Papers there are several clippings on the legal trouble of Leon Kirilenko. The last one
mentions that he was going to be sentenced for having a girl in his room, but theres no follow up. Does anyone what happened to him? Did he pull any jail time, did he ever wrestle again?
Thank you
Bob

I never heard of Puther Kahn, can't find him on Google or in my files.
Leon Kirlenko (correct spelling I think) was the son of wrestler Matros. I recall seeing him on Kohler's Marigold Gardens shows in the early fifties.
