Cincinnati was the home to some great professional wrestling action in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Cincinnati Gardens was a major venue in the Big Time Wrestling territory, which covered most of Michigan and Ohio in the days before Vince McMahon’s WWE dominated professional wrestling across North America.

For your enjoyment this lunch hour, have a look at a 1973 match pitting Haystacks Calhoun, everybody’s favorite 600 pound grappler from Arkansas, against Killer Brooks.
