Promoter Bob Brooks talked to Tom Andrews of the Interns. They started out with a trip down memory lane talking how Tom started out down the west coast wrestling as simply "Tom Andrews" before he met up with the legendary Ken Ramey who invited him to become one of the interns when Billy Garret retired.
I was wincing when Tom told the story about how he got cracked over the head with a chair and Harley Race insisted he go to the emergency room. And that wasn't even the worst part! Two weeks later Harley Race personally pulled the stitches --KNOTS AND ALL -- out of his scalp!
You'll have to check out the archives for more details on that and the other stories Tom told us.
Then we talked to the lovely Judy Martin. Judy is as lovely and gracious as ever, but --tough!!! This woman trained with The Fabulous Moolah. She is not to be trifled with. She told us about the match in Amarillo with Velvet McIntyre and her experiences in Japan with the Jumping Bomb Angels. She was a real lady of the ring and still is!
...and she hasn't forgotten the Jumping Bomb Angels. Check out the archives to hear what Judy Martin had to say about these to lovely but formidable Japanese wrestlers.
And tune in for sure when Promotor Bob Brooks travels to the Cauliflower Alley Club for the Annual reunion. The Promotor will be calling in with his report from the road, which had better include the lunch he promised to by Tom Andrews!
