'Wrestling With The Past'

In 2001 The Comedy Network produced a short series on Classic Canadian Wrestling featuring Gene Kiniski, Lord Littlebrook, Duncan MacTavish, Butcher Vachon, Mad Dog Vachon, Baron Von Raschke, Whipper Watson Jr. and others.

In the article Kiniski proclaims "I'd still be wrestling if it weren't for my knees" and I don't doubt it for a minute, even at a then 72 years old. Kiniski passed on in April of this year 2010, one of the last veterans of the Ontario scene in the 50's and beyond.
