Deck The Halls: Georgia Wrestling Christmas

The following is a part of compilation of features that the Turner broadcasting company did each year in the late 1970s and early 1980s where each of their in-house pograms presented a Christmas-themed video.

I believe, although not 100% sure, this is from 1982.

Front row (L-R) Bruno Sammartino, Jr., Gordon Solie, Mr. Wrestling II, Freddie Miller, Ted Oates 
Back Row: (L-R) Bob Armstrong, Brad Armstrong, Big Red, Michael Hayes, (undetermined), Tommy Rich.

Others seen in brief wrestling clips are Austin Idol, Mike Jackson, El Gran Apollo,  Ken Timbs, Terry Gordy, Ole Anderson, and a few others.

Not sure who that is between Michael Hayes and Tommy Rich - - sort of looks like a very young Steve Lombardi. Anyone have any ideas?

Merry Christmas!
