All Star Superslam Wrestling
All Star, Europe's most respected and longest established
wrestling organisation is now
starting a fifth decade after an amazing rollercoaster
ride that still brings thousands of fans to
some of the country's leading venues!
It was in 1970 that Birkenhead-based Brian Dixon first threw his hat into the promotional ring with an October bill at Marple, Cheshire. It all went well until Brian found at the end of the evening that the takings had been stolen from the boot of his car! Undeterred, he pressed on to attract top stars and move into larger halls around the country through the 1970's and into the 1980's.
It was not long before All Star's Wrestling Enterprises and Merseyside All Star Wrestling predecessors were looking outside Britain for talent with early overseas visitors including North Americans John Gildon and Chief Billy White Cloud, plus European ladies stars Lena Magnanni and Lola Garcia. A big breakthrough came in 1986 when All Star secured a regular spot presenting 'World of Sport's' Saturday afternoon televised action, the cameras first zooming-in for a November 25 bill at the Lewisham Theatre.
Over the years, All Star has presented stars like Wayne Bridges, Tony St.Clair, Catweazle, Robbie Brookside, Wayne Martin, Bobby Barnes, Kendo Nagaski, Steve Regal (now better known as WWE Superstar William Regal) and many more.
Britain has become a mecca for North American stars down the years and big names from WWF/WWE to appear here for All Star have included Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, 'Earthquake' John Tenta, Yokozuna, The Bushwhackers, Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart and Greg Valentine, while there have been more recent visits from the 'American Avalanche' P.N.Neuz, ring vampire Gangrel, native American ring brave Tatanka, colourful Big Vito and Ricky Steamboat junior.
There have been long-standing links between All Star and World Wrestling Entertainments (WWE), going right back to when its WWF predecessor's first UK bill at London's Docklands Arena included bouts with All Star wrestlers.
