Echoes of Our Past

Professional wrestling in Minden

This week's Echo of Our Past is a "rerun" column about a popular entertainment industry of the recent past, and how it had a brief period of popularity in Minden, more than 70 years ago.

The topic of today's Echo is professional wrestling, which has been among the highest rated programming on cable television. Few people know that years ago, before the modern versions, before the Championship Wrestling in Shreveport, even before the television heyday of the original Gorgeous George in the 1950s, Minden was home to professional wrestling. In fact, the brief period that the sport thrived here led to Minden gaining one very outstanding citizen.
