I always assumed they just basically created characters and feuds and big spots and couldn't possibly choreograph every spot.Yeah I thought similar. Most of these guys and gals were experienced and like pro wres fighters, they could call the match right on the track. I'd like to know a bit more in-depth though. Did the teams know who was going to win that night before they went to the arena? Plus the bumps seemed brutal. Did they teach bumping in Derby school? Did the Roller Derby have their own Loo Theis?
Charlie O Connell, Anne Cuvello and Joanie Weston were the Lou Thez of Roller Derby.
They still have roller Derby schools and leagues in San Francisco though its not like what you use to see on TV.
