mixed wrestling defeated 2016++EXPLANATION.

Just to explain to readers who have noticed my absence in recent days.I have been sidelined with an old back injury which needed a spot of hospital treatment and also I am waiting for a date for treatment on one of my eyes,which I am hoping will come soon.
With these ongoing problems and forthcoming holidays I will not be able to post on as regular basis!!!
From this Thursday the 14th I shall be away for around ten days and then I shall post as regular as possible subject to hospital visits.

DIFFERENT ATTITUDES.

My mention the other day of the fact that female wrestlers were almost at war with the Greater London Council and it's leader Ken Livingston who would tell anyone who could be bothered to listen how demeaning wrestling was for women brought me some thoughts from long time fans.
One such fan from Lancashire remembers going to watch a promotion over the border in Yorkshire featuring Mitzi Mueller having seen the
advertising bills and coming away feeling cheated when Mitzi came to the ring in a shapeless,sexless leotard and thinking like many other fans how could the G.L.C.be offended dressed like that!!
Another longtime fan recalls how in the 70's he spent a lot of time in Germany and was pleasantly surprised at the liberal attitude of people when he visited a Bierkellar in Munich and witnessed girls


boxing topless,he was also almost shocked at the numbers watching.It was often said that crowds of over a thousand were known to attend such events and like myself he had doubts about so many but would agree to there being several hundred.

When he returned to his home in close proximity to London and discovered the G.L.C.ban still applied and then on a visit to the North witnessed the dress code of the female wrestlers in his own words he felt he had stepped back in time and the swinging sixties had never happened and he was in some kind of a time warp.

HAVE YOU GOT THIS????

Or have you ever heard it??
While Majorie Farrar was the leader in the effort to get women's wrestling allowed in London,Mitzi Mueller always claimed to have taken part in a number of private shows behind closed doors and as part of her own efforts released this record on which it's claimed she was backed by non other than Susi Quatro's backing band.
Should you have a copy a friend who knows a little of the record business tells me the last copy he recalls changed hands for around £9.

Jabberwalk: This Is America Part 2 (1977)

I have to thank friends on the Mixed Wrestling Forum who managed to find this,I have to admit to having heard of it but never seen it.

Apparently it's one of those films made in the 70's which regarded women even lifting weights as rather kinky.The highlight comes around thirty three minutes when the Joan Wise girls appear,shortly after a display of Karate and judo by nuns.

Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes vs Ashley Nee

This is another of those which is a baffler Ashley Nee
is more than capable fighter in the cage,so why for her boxing debut would she go in with a girl who as fought at world level.
Miss Lopes
despite having lost as twice fought for a world title.
