Portland Wrestlecast: Portland Wrestling TV signs off

This is a free show. Just click below to listen.

On December 28, 1991, a Pacific Northwest institution came to an end as Portland Wrestling signed off the air.

Originally started in 1953, Portland Wrestling is still one of the longest-running shows in TV history, even longer than WWE Raw.

On this 30th anniversary edition of the Portland Wrestlecast, we talk about all of the factors that led to the demise: WWE, the commission, a sponsor's bankruptcy and more. 

I talk to booker Len "The Grappler" Denton about the weeks leading up to the end, the crowds, the announcement and the aftermath. I also talk to longtime fan Edward Thomas about the atmosphere at The Portland Sports arena before and after Portland Wrestling went off the air.

FYI: contact The Grappler about Ebay sales, books, special personal messages, etc.
