George Scott & Andre the Giant at WRAL

Click to enlarge.

This photo made the rounds online after George Scott's death. I think it was originally posted by his wife. it is a great photo of George with Andre the Giant on the set of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling in WRAL TV studios in Raleigh, circa 1976.

Prior to the switch to the larger, nicer sets in 1978, Crockett used simple back-drops for each of their TV shows. You can see here that the back-drop is on wheels and would be turned around for the Wide World Wrestling show which would tape right after Mid-Atlantic.
