My condolences to the family of Red Bastien. He was a timeless professional and he will be missed. RIP Red.

    Amazing wrestler. He did high flying moves in the 60’s and 70’s which haven’t been duplicated even today. His team with Billy LYons could have easily stepped into any promotion today and dominated. He was on the first card I ever saw, in 1969. I wish he would have booked, he had a great mind for the business.
