Wrestle Art: Greensboro (1978)

  curated by Dick Bourne, Mid-Atlantic Gateway

I've always enjoyed the various wrestler artwork that appeared in various ads for wrestling around the country. I've decided to display some examples of those from time to time here on the Gateway.

No. 2: Greensboro, North Carolina - September 1978

The art will be familiar to Greensboro area fans from the late 1970s when this art appeared at the top of almost every Greensboro newspaper wrestling ad for many years.

The art features one wrestler single leg-diving another. 

Special thanks to Mark Eastridge for access to his unmatched collection of wrestling clippings from all over the country going back decades. I look forward to sharing more Wrestle Art in future posts.
