The association of wrestling and the Royal Albert Hall goes back to 2 July 1904, when the Estonian Georges Hackenschmidt, defeated the American champion, Tom Jenkins.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Wrestling appeared in hundreds of UK town halls and theatres night after night, as well the weekly Saturday slot just before the football scores.
