Quicker things by AC on Twitter @mapleleafwrestl1

Thanks to Roger Baker for contributions to mapleleafwrestling.com. Many of the classic photos come from Roger's collections from his many years as a fan and then professional photog shooting Wrestling and Boxing bouts at MLG and around Ontario and the US. We are fortunate to have his contributions to the articles as he shares his memories from the classic days of ontario pro wrestling. Roger wrote many great stories for the wrestling mags of the day that featured his photos and time spent with many of the biggest stars ever to appear at Maple Leaf Gardens. Thank you Roger!

Thanks to Griff Henderson and Gary Will for their contributions to mapleleafwrestling.com. Griff and I have shared stuff for years and Gary is the go-to guy for Toronto history.
