Last night’s Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame Banquet was superb. While the quality is less-than-excellent, above is a photo of Guest of Honor, Angelo Savoldi. Angelo is 97 years old, not 95. Other noteworthy attendees were Bob Backlund, J.J. Dillon, Tito Santana, Domenic DeNucci, The Original Doink the Clown, Davey O’Hannon, Pretty Boy Larry Sharpe, Doc Diamond and fellow Referee Dick Woehrle. Many up-and-coming wrestlers attended – some of whom you will see in NWA rings around the world. I conveyed the official greetings of NWA Executive Directors along with my business partners Phil Varlese and Ironman Tommy Cairo.
