Whipper Goes Berserk!

Not the image normally associated with the perennial 'good guy' Whipper Watson. During his feud with The Great Togo in Oshawa in 1953 Whipper let his emotions get the better of him and attacks Togo with a chair 'cutting him for 11 stitches'. 

The feud helps revitalize Oshawa Wrestling setting attendance records with a high of 3500+ to see the third bout in the series on July. The match-up was so popular they came back in August for a 2 card series
