Blackjack Mulligan 1982: Classic Photo



Blackjack Mulligan 1982 heading up the ramp to face John Studd in one of their many bouts here. Whenever those two met you could be sure the blood would be flowing. Their Bunkhouse matches here were some of the most brutal of the era. Blackjack had first appeared in Toronto back in 1971 as a heel and returned in the M-A era soon to turn into one of the most popular stars here.

Blackjack would stay on the next day (as would son Jr.) to appear on the TV tapings in Brantford. Sr. would form an unusual team with Tony Parisi for a couple of bouts while Jr. would team with Johnny Weaver against Studd and Koloff in the main of that TV card.
