Paul Diamond MLG 1969

Thanks to historian Mike Norris for helping me to identify this pic of local wrestler Paul Diamond at MLG in 1969. He had a gimmick as the 'The World's Most Handsome Wrestler'. Also notable is the great shot of announcer Jerry Hiff who preceded Norm Kimber (looks a little like Verne Gagne there). Younger fans may remember the 'other' Paul Diamond from the AWA in the 80's.

  1. I recently met Paul Diamond and I walked away inspired. For the last 15 years he has been assisting an elderly lady who was abandoned by her family. He cooks for her, takes her to appointments and gives her a sense of family. He is funny, honest and has a great energy. We talked for about 20 minutes and I regret not getting a photo with him! The only difference in him now is that he has grey hair, still a handsome guy.
