The Daily Star is barely a newspaper. It's closer to the National Enquirer and is only read by retards.

Johnny Saint as a "legend" of British wrestling is one of the greatest stories ever told by Mike Quackenbush. The guy was a great practitioner of the "World of Sport" style, but he was only one of many. His great talent was his incredible longevity, so he was able to perform for US audiences in the 2000s when in his 60s. This is the equivalent of Dean Malenko being given some role in 2040 and people talking him up as if he was the one who saved wrestling in 1996.

He's the promoter of Chikara who was responsible for bringing 65-year-old Saint over to the US in the mid-2000s for matches against himself and Colt Cabana.

Yes. The exact same wrestling promotion that you have never watched. All wrestling is ridiculous. It's men in their underwear pretending to fight, and that's it at it's LEAST ridiculous. We wrestling fans are the lowest of the low, we have no right to look down on wrestling we don't like and call it garbage.

Not up mention CHIKARA really was putting on some of the best technical wrestling matches in the world at that time.
