85th Anniversary of first card at MLG

Nov 19 2016 marks the 85th Anniversary of the first wrestling card held at MLG. Here are some clippings from the paper. There had been lots of wrestling in Toronto prior but this was the start of  'the mecca of Professional Wrestling' talk.

There are articles on the MLW site about Jack Corcoran, Frank Tunney, and others involved in the early days of Maple Leaf Wrestling.

An earlier blog looked at 85 great moments of MLW at

Greg Oliver wrote a nice recap of that first card on Slam Wrestling a while back, well worth a read at
