El Halcon #167 - Mil Mascaras y Amigos

In the early and mid-70s i was a devoted Houston Wrestling viewer. The Houston Colisseum had matches every Friday & Saturday night and they were also televised on UHF Channel 39, hosted by the legendary Paul Boesch, a charming man credited with(among other things)inventing Mud -Wrestling!

I'm always having trouble deciding what i'm going to post next, so i often look to my fellow blogger's blogs for inspiration. So you & i both can thank Tenebrous Kate's Champions of Justice review for this one!
