I don't own the official DVD's so I have never seen this.  This is the song that originally got me into them in the first place, not long after it appeared in 1974:

Rossi-where the hell is "Coventry" in Queens?  Does it even exist anymore?

It is/was on Queens Blvd., I guess near Sunnyside Gardens, but I have no idea if it's still there.  Haven't heard about it in forever.

I figured it was in that area but I had no idea it was that close.  Both those venues are before my time.  There was still a wrestling connection on Queens Blvd though as ECW's Madhouse of Extreme (the Elk's Lodge) used that as their NY home, and indy shows were running there monthly up until 2004 or so.  That is pretty much where guys like Matt Striker and Homicide got their starts.

Yep, and a little further east ECW used to run Lost Battalion Hall on 93rd St. and QB all the time also. Back in the 50's and early 60's there was a place right off QB at around 33rd Street called the Queensboro Arena which seated about 2500 and was used regularly for boxing and wrestling.

I was at the Lost Battalion Hall show when The Gangstas got them kicked out of the building, so they moved to the Elks Lodge.

Lost Battalion was a horrible place for wrestling. Even ringside seats had shitty sightlines. I was there for the Christmas holiday 1995 show when Cactus and Sabu took turns mutilating themselves to the delight of little children everywhere. For what its worth, to this day Lost Battalion is probably the best place on the East Coast to learn the sport of Olympic Weightlifting.

I was there as well.  I think Lost Battalion was also the site of Cactus Jack's next-to-last ECW match (the next night he jobbed to Mikey at the ECW Arena).  That night Cactus did a shocking job to a nobody named Chris Jericho.  We did not treat the pretty boy very well in NY that night.  It wasn't until the next month when he won the ECW TV title in that awesome 4-way against Shane Douglas, Pit Bull II, and 2 Cold Scorpio that he gained street cred with us.
