From the archive: ‘Rasputin the Mad Monk’ to appear at Templemore - November 1978

‘Rasputin’, one of the toughest wrestlers in the mat game today will be on the bill at the Templemore Sports Complex on Thursday night week when he takes on Rockey Hunter in a heavyweight contest.

This promises to be an all action contest because in the last fight between these two the refererr had to step in and disqualify both when things got out of hand.

Rasputing, who has just recovered from a car accident is fit and well for this bout.

He has not found it easy to get opponents lately as few wrestlers wish to take him on, so he is really looking froward to this fight.

Rasputin’s fans follow him all over to support him in his fights, and this enables ‘The Monk’ to give his fans something to cheer about.

In what promises to be a sell-out, fans are advsied to get their tickets early for the Sports Complex as the ring side seats are very limited.
