Seconds out - Round one!

David Pickles

Fan memory

I have many memories of the RAH over the years, from the tennis to concerts, but my abiding memories are seats A5 and A6 at the Professional Wrestling tournaments, held from September to May each year, on usually the first Wednesday of each month.

After the death of my father in October 1978 I happened upon a poster at Blackfriars Station in December of that year advertising a wrestling tournament in January 1979.  I managed to obtain two ringside seats A5 & A6 for my late mother and I - and the rest is history.

Four glorious years spent at the Hall ringside until May 1982 watching top-class wrestling and enjoying every minute of the unique atmosphere the Hall has to offer.

Hopefully again, one day, UK pro-wrestling could be back on the agenda.
