Jon Kidd writes in stating that his father (recently passed) was a wrestler in the Georgia/Tennessee area for 35 years. One of his father's possessions was this flyer from Christmas 1951. He is wondering if any of his father's friends are alive today.

I think you've tried to post a picture from inside your email account. That's why it isn't appearing.

Yes thank you I have saved it to my computer and tried to upload it but it is too large for the site. There is an additional flyer from 1949 also. Working on shrinking it down.

This is Clovis, NM from the Amarillo territory.

Tony Angelo is Angelo Poffo (although Tommy Martindale wrestled in his place on this card).

No confirmation on who is alive or dead (except Poffo), but I was have a guess at their ages from their earliest known match.

Cummings and Johnson would be around 100 years old or more today.

Martindle would be about ten years younger. Overhuls was a rookie so could be as young as 85 if still alive today.



EDIT: Some quick research... Overhuls died in 1993.
