Kay Noble Tough Competitor!

Although we lost Kay in 2006, her memories of a ring flier will live on! Kay was a lovely woman, but in the squared circle, she would snarl and went after her opponents with ferocity!
Born in St Joseph Missouri, Kay was popular in Amarillo Texas and promoters looked forward to booking her. She worked the Central States Region and became the Women's Champion!
She was a high flying wrestler who went to the air to take down her foes.
Kay worked hard at her craft and took the ring seriously.
Kay was respected by her partners and opponents.
In 1971 she was the Woman Wrestler of the year!
When Kay retired she operated a
upholstery shop and devoted much of her time to children with cancer at the local hospital.
Kay Noble, remembered always at Classic Professional Wrestling!

Heather Feather!

Yes, the elusive Heather Feather who wrestled in Detroit and was seen in the movie I Like To Hurt People!
She came to fame by demanding equal rights for Women Wrestlers.
After wrestling a bear Heather won her chance to Wrestle and defeat a man!
Heather wrestled in Detroit in the 1970's and Wrestled in the Southern States as well.
Heather Feather quietly slipped into obscurity. Several sightings have come in stating she works at a gas station in Detroit, while others say she drove a Airport Shuttle Bus...
Regardless of her whereabouts, we know that Heather chased her dreams and achieved her goals.
At Classic Professional Wrestling
we will always remember Heather Feather!

September 1st 1972 Soldiers Field Cage Match!

September 1, 1972 Soldiers Field Chicago Illinois! Perhaps one of the bloodiest matches ever in the Windy City!
In one corner, The Blackjacks. Mulligan at 310 lbs from Sweetwater Texas! Lanza at 275lbs from Albuquerque New Mexico, and The Manager, at 230 lbs from Beverly Hills California, "Pretty Boy" Bobby Heenan!
Their opponents, at 252 lbs, "The Wrestler who made Milwaukee Famous" The Crusher!
and weighing in at 259 lbs, from Reno Nevada, "The Worlds Most Dangerous Wrestler" Dick The Bruiser!
The third man in the ring, Heavyweight Boxing Champion "Jersey" Joe Wolcott Referee!
The epitome of Cage Matches! Promoter Bob Luce pulled off the venue need for this once in a lifetime card!
Yes, this was it, the match where Bobby Heenan was beaten so bad he was vomiting in the ring!
My friend Blackjack Mulligan told me on CPW Radio, the air was cold coming off of Lake Michigan because of the repairs going on at Soldiers Field.
This was priceless and remembered as the best cage match ever!
