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.
