Classic Professional Wrestling Ads From a Time When People Read Newspapers

Wrestling Newspaper Ad 1

Long before the internet, social media and entire TV stations dedicated to the sport, wrestling had to advertise their upcoming house shows much like the town plumber — they took out ads in local newspapers. 

As a kid, a newspaper ad for an upcoming wrestling show automatically put me into begging mode with the parents. Can we go? Can we? Please? I’ll be good. I love you more. I’ll even take care of you when you’re too old to poop in the proper places.

Check out these classic wrestling promotional ads from years gone by and think back to a time when the newspaper actually made people happy.
