Don Leo at Maple Leaf Stadium 1959

 

  A riot breaks out at Maple Leaf Stadium in August 1959 after Gene Kiniski interferes in a Don Leo-Whipper bout. The fans throw their chairs and Don Leo grabs a rope stand as he and Kiniski try to escape. Roger Baker's favorite ref Ref Joe Gollob is hit by a chair (again) and suffers a nasty head wound that requires stitches. 

Just another day in the Maple Leaf mat wars. 

We looked at outdoor events including the Stadium cards recently at Open Air Wrestling in Toronto
