Was there really no wrestling Jan-APR and NOV/DEC in this region. It received little coverage in most magazines of the day so I'm just wondering what those poor folks did for wrestling during the off months. The workers off course would find places to wrestle.
Wrestling season the Maritimes ran from the Middle of May to Middle of October.   Normally during the winter months, Hockey dominated the area, and the travelling would of been too hazardous as it was all driving.

During the winter seasons we did receive wrestling from other territories, in the 60's and 70's we had wrestling from Quebec with As de la Lutte, or Grand Prix Wrestling from Quebec, also I believe Stampede Wrestling was broadcast on CBC throughout Canada.

In the 80's we got WWF, also AWA and Stampded on TSN.
Thanks for the info.  For any wrestlers who were from the area-local guys- they had second "jobs" in the off months as I assume not all would have been able even to fly in to other territories for an extended stay.   

This thread was great till Rossi posted that AA ruined it.
