For him, wrestling – real wrestling – was a means of expression, both physical and mental. It was also, in Britain at least, a dying art. Then tragedy struck – chronic health problems prevented him doing what he loved most. Unwilling to let go, he travelled to such far-flung reaches as India, Mongolia, Nigeria and Brazil in an attempt to uncover some deeper, perhaps spiritual, dimension to wrestling.
