• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 89th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Les Thornton.
After wrestling in his home country England, UK during the 60s, Thornton came to the United States and wrestled for several NWA territories during the 70s and 80s such as Georgia Championship Wrestling, Championship Wrestling from Florida & Jim Crockett Promotions, before finally joining the World Wrestling Federation in 1984 in the process of Vince McMahon buying Georgia Championship Wrestling and signing a few of their regulars.
Despite being a star and a well respected Veteran in several territories, he only made it to lower mid-card / undercard status in the WWF and left the promotion in 1986.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE
April 9, 1934 – February 1, 2019
