I used to live near Riley's Gym, The Snake Pit. One pro wrestler who trained there was Tommy Moore. His ring name was Jack Dempsey. I think he was British Middleweight champion at some time. There was a documentary made about the gym in the 1980s. It was called The Wigan Hold. There were interviews with Ernie Riley, and Jack Dempsey on it. Another Wigan wrestler was Steve ( Buffalo ) Breheny in the 80s. Before the war there were two brothers billy and Ike Beech. There must be many more.
