SOME INTERESTING PHOTOS OF JCP STARS...

In doing research for future blogging topics, I have come across some photographs of a number of wrestling stars who, during their careers, entertained MID-ATLANTIC CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING fans throughout the many years.
---
For a variety of reasons, these pictures jumped out at me as being "out of the norm", so I thought I would share them with you all...


DICK MURDOCH
---
Here is DICK with a farm animal.
Fill in your own caption on this one.


FRENCHIE LAMONT versus LORD LITTLEBROOK
---
No, this photo isn't printed wrong side up. It was taken this way, proving how acrobatic the 'midget' wrestlers could be.

I about freaked when I saw this one.
---
It's JIM 'BRUTE' BERNARD with a full head of hair.

A great backstage shot of three wrestling greats...
---
LITTLE BEAVER, BIG BOY BROWN (of THE KENTUCKIANS) and TIM (MR. WRESTLING) WOODS.

BARON VON RASCHKE
---
There have been many German-character wrestlers, and generally, they wrestled as 'heels' in the U.S., continuing the political turmoil between the two countries during two World Wars.
---
It was generally assumed that the German guys would wear the 'German Cross' as their symbol to the homeland, NOT Nazi emblems (for obvious political reasons).
---
So this really knocked me for a loop when I saw this photo of our beloved BARON VON RASCHKE breaking the wrestling tradition and utilizing the Nazi insignia in his character.
---
The BARON never used this in JCP. It was at a point in his career before he worked in the MID-ATLANTIC territory.

Here is MR. WRESTLING (TIM WOODS) at a wrestling show with MRS. WRESTLING (TIM's wife).


WALLY DUSEK
---
Many remember WALLY as the WGHP-TV wrestling show and GREENSBORO COLISEUM announcer. Here's a photo of when WALLY wrestled as one of the infamous DUSEK brothers.
---
I wonder if he was an old-looking infant.
