This sounds closer to what was happening in 1985, when I started going to the arena. In my era, they wrestled at the Lane County Fairgrounds, in Eugene, every Friday night. They also wrestled at the Salem Center Arena every Thursday. Since these wrestlers were on the road usually 7 nights a week, these were both relatively close. Salem being about 45 miles from Portland and Eugene being about 90 miles.

I always loved it when the midgets came to town. They had a great comedy routine in the ring. No matter what the card was, the midgets were always the best. They had the same athletic ability, but were so much more entertaining than many of the other matches. They have never gotten the credit they deserved. Of course midgets is a derogatory term, as these fighters were just as good as their average sized counterparts, and not less than in any way.
