Old school wrestling

During the early 1970's I used to watch Big Time Wrestling on TV. They were broadcast from one of the local arenas. This was long before the glitz, glamour and theater that modern day wrestling is now. Some of those guys were the stars that I found out made a decent living by doing a circuit of nearby cities. But then there were the other guys who would don a mask who were nearly guaranteed to lose. I'm sure some rose up the ranks and made some fame but some of those guys probably went back to their day jobs as auto mechanics, butchers or some other mundane day job.
