Infinity Land Posted April 3 Share Posted April 3 In amongst today's news, Dave Meltzer has posted that Max Crabtree passed away. His era was before my time, probably true of many on here. Although his influence of British wrestling was respected enough to be inducted into the UKFF British & Irish Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2018. Where I lifted the bio below. Mini Biography: English wrestler/Promoter. Took over Joint Promotions in 1975. Created a boom period in British wrestling with the creation of the Big Daddy gimmick for his brother Shirley. Promotor for the majority of the World of Sport TV shows. Company would go into decline when many stars jumped to All-Star due to the overexposure of Big Daddy. Promotion closed in 1995 two years after Daddy’s retirement. Was Previously a Hall of Fame Finalist in 2017 Why We Voted For Him: A huge part of arguably British Wrestling’s most successful time - understood how to maximize the appeal of his brother Big Daddy and guided him to be British Wrestling’s biggest star Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
