From A.W.A. Wrestling All Star No. 138 Circa 1975. To read more about Billy Robinson and his life as both a Professional and Catch Wrestler make sure to check out Physical Chess: My Life in Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling
When one mentions Manchester, England, there is no doubt who the wrestler could be. Of course it is the extremely handsome Billy Robinson. Upon meeting Billy , he was friendly and casual. He is quite a stylish person. while talking with him, one can sense this man’s gentleness and tenderness. This coupled with kindness and compassion makes him an excellent wrestling instructor for the handicapped. he is truly a humane person.
Irregardless of his wrestling-boxing background, Robby desired to become a schoolteacher. This was his area of concentration while he attended Hetmorr college. Since he started his professional wrestling career, Robby has not lost any of his titles. When he left Britain to tour and study, one of his British titles was forfeited since he did not defend it during a twelve-month period. At this time, Robby was living in Japan. When the new British Heavyweight champ, Albert Wallsh, arrived in Japan, Billy fought Wallsh and regained his title. Robby studied different styles of wrestling in Europe, but basically he studied in Germany and Hungary especially under one man, Gidean Gida.
Whenever he appears, the fans roar and cheer. Despite his popularity, Billy has remained a very down-to-earth person. He is extremely friendly, and he will talk with any of his fans; he is never too busy to be pleasant. Robby is an extremely exciting wrestler, and everyone adores him. One understands why all people feel this way about him.
One of my favorites I bought this book off the shelf back in 1990. It’s a beautiful depiction of the Incredible Hulk throwing Hulk Hogan with an outside wrist lock throw by the great comic book artist Herb Trimpe an artist I admired for years who unfortunately passed away this week at the age of seventy five.
