Just thought I'd share some of the George Gordienko photos that I found in the Greek press. He wrestled in Athens in 1963, 1965, 1969 and 1970. At first he was billed as the Russian Giorgi Korienko, and then George Korienko. Never Gordienko. He was a big star in Greece.

Very cool finds with those cage matches Phil. Had heard about Zebra Kid and Kangaroo Kennedy in Greece, nice to see that newspaper ad also.
