For all of you historians and lady wrestling fans...I want to let you know that today, July 8th, 50 years ago in 1955...Girls were allowed to wrestle in front of a male and female crowd !!!
IT was the First EVER girls tag match,( of which I have bits of- in one of my videos). It was held in the RAINBO ICE ARENA...Match was: Mille Stafford and Penny Banner vs LeChona LeClaire and Mae Weston.
Times sure have changed..! ! ! Penny
