Riots, Fights, Fires, & Mayhem: Hamilton 1947

We will periodically look at some of the fan riots, fights, deaths, fires, and other stuff that have been documented at Wrestling cards across Ontario over the years.

First up Dec 1947 in Hamilton. A different brand of mayhem

The Hamilton Municipal Pool hosted wrestling for many years with the ring over the pool. No sharks but the site of a few incidents, mostly wrestlers or refs who couldn't swim. This one takes it to a whole other level. They used that same photo in the Toronto ads for the next few years.
