I didn't realise he was that age either. He must have been well into his fifties when wrestling was in it's heyday on TV (and incredibly fit for his age)
His first tv match was on May 26, 1947 no less, on the one channel that existed then, BBC tv.

Though arguably the real heyday of British wrestling was in the early sixties when McManus and Jackie Pallo were the 2 biggest stars, as opposed to the Big Daddy late seventies era.
