Paul Winkhaus Tribute on "All Star Championship Wrestling" Site

Paul Winkhaus
Carroll Hall, who publishes the "All Star Championship Wrestling" website, recently posted some material related to Crockett Greenville promoter Paul Winkhaus, including his obituary.

Winkhaus promoted Greenville, Asheville, Anderson, and smaller towns in that area for Jim Crockett Promotions for several decades. He also co-hosted some promotional segments on WLOS-13 out of Asheville, NC, for the local shows at the Asheville Auditorium in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The segments were taped at the WLOS studio and were hosted and produced by then WLOS sports director Munsey Milliway.

Some good stuff there, including an early photo of Winkhaus with boxer Tony "Two Ton" Galento, circa 1930s.

Here are the links:
