Hamilton 1964

Wrestler Martin Hutzler owned Martin's Sportstown Grill in Hamilton. On this occasion for the Football Hall Of Fame, several wrestlers would take part in acting as cashier for an hour. Billy Red Lyons, Abe Zvonkin, Jan Gotch, Jim Hady, and Eric Froehlich joined The 'Destroyer' -who had been unmasked as Joe Christie at MLG earlier in the year.

Other celebrities include CHCH Anchor Norm Marshall, Football Hall Of Famers Bernie Faloney, Garney Henley and John Barro, and voice of the Ti-Cats Perc Allen. 

The restaurant is still there, now known as the The Purple Pear
