Gene Kiniski battles Yukon Eric 1957 with Ref Bert Maxwell officiating.
These two would be on the short list of the top stars to appear here in the 1950's.
Both had success on top for many years both as single and tag stars.

Yukon Eric appeared here regularly from 1949 to 1964 and was one of the most beloved stars just behind Whipper Watson.
Kiniski was an athletic powerhouse with a lengthy ring career. His debut in Toronto in 1956 at the age of 27 was the start of a 26 year run in the city. Even in the late 1970's and early 1980's Big Gene could still put on a good bout against the new stars like Ric Flair, Dino Bravo and Angelo Mosca, and was a part of several important angles in the later days of Maple Leaf.
