Oshawa Wrestling History: Peterborough 1952-1953

A look at the winter wrestling season of 1952-53 in Peterborough ON. It's part of the Toronto circuit locally promoted by Oshawa promoter Pat Milosh.

This Peterborough season starts when the Oshawa season ends and ends a few days before the 1953 Oshawa season opens. Peterborough was a regular spot from the 1930s and by this era was full with the Tunney stars and assorted indys. Red Garner (CCWA), Toar Morgan, and Larry Kasaboski (Northland) all ran cards in the area in the '50s-60s.

Some highlights of the year include a visit by Primo Carnera to take on another giant in Sky Hi Lee. The tag team of Dirty Dick Raines & Lou Plummer was on top of the busy tag scene while the masked Red Mask would task the fan favorites.
