I enjoyed reading this little book very much Karen L. Conley I enjoyed reading this little book very much. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio during the fifties and sixties and remember watching wrestling every Saturday afternoon. The show was called Lex's Live Wrestling" and was sponsored by a car dealer named Lex Mayers. Frankie Talaber was always my favorite wrestler. He was a babyface but could really fight rough if he had to. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about the good old glory days of wrestling.. Jeanie L.
