John Ringley in the Mid-South

Check out this little article from Little Rock, Arkansas from 1977. The article features quotes from John Ringley, who was one of the key figures in Jim Crockett Promotions in the 1960s and early 1970s.

After leaving JCP, Ringley worked for promoter Leroy McGuirk out of the Tulsa (Oklahoma) territory that included central Arkansas and other surrounding areas.

Contributor Mark Eastridge came across the clipping from the Arkansas Gazette and sent it to us. We love coming across articles from that era that involve promoters at Jim Crockett Promotions or their alumni.
