Boscik, who was one of the first stars to appear on our shows and
who, with Johnny Kidd, is immortalised as one of the wrestlers on
the Premier Promotions logo.
Rocco, ring legend whose appearances included bouts against Danny
Collins, Tony St Clair and Brian Maxine.
Weaver, a stalwart of our northern shows who figured in a series of

Prayter, ladies star who was unbeaten in ten matches in Premier
Smothers, American star who we matched against Doug Williams. Steve

Bailey, Worthing Theatres manager, without whose help and enthusiasm
for wrestling we would not have been able to run shows at the Pier

Plunkett, wrestling historian extraordinaire, and David Franklin,
super fan who often travelled to our shows in the South East of
England from his home in the West Country.
YEAR TO FORGET. A TIME TO REMEMBER.
