Tales from the Vault – March 2016

Since the thread on the message board looking back at some of the great stuff from the SCU archives has been so successful, I thought why not do a regular column looking back at various stories from the vault.

One Year Ago

Sadly, one year ago this month saw the passing of Cincinnati Red, who was inducted into the Southern California Pro-Wrestling Hall of Fame. It’s been said countless times, but it bears repeating how much he did for wrestling in Southern California. He continues to be missed.

Adam Pearce was the NWA World Champion and wrestling all over the place defending the title. He took time out of his busy schedule to do an interview with Jay Cal.
