    This is almost as big as being named Man of The Year by the Glenshaw Elks club.

    My sister and I told once her two oldest kids about how we watched Studio Wrestling, followed by the syndicated Lawrence Welk Show (“the champagne bubbles”), on Saturday nights. I think they looked at us as if we were from Mars (the planet, not the Butler County hamlet).

    Honestly, though, I have fond memories of watching Studio Wrestling, listening to Bill Cardille and the catchy “El Capitan” that served as tje opening the closing theme. Congrats are in order for Chilly Billy, Jumping Johnny and the Cannonball.
