Hello and welcome to the latest installment of Houston Wrestling here at Kayfabe Memories.  Occasionally life gives us some unexpected joys, and breaks.  In researching for this month’s article, I was given both.  I will check the Message Board of Kayfabe Memories with regularity.  A few weeks ago, I noticed that there was an opportunity for me that I couldn’t pass up.  Trust me, I would have been a fool to even think about passing this opportunity up.  Fortunately, I get to pass this treat onto our readers!!!  With this installment, we are privileged to take a look at a most interesting history of Houston Wrestling provided by a man who should know the most about it. 

Houston Wrestling promoter Paul Boesch wrote an autobiography about his career in the wrestling business that was completed shortly before his death in March 1989.  The book was entitled “Hey, Boy! Where’d You Get Them Ears?”  Obviously this was a reference to the legendary “cauliflower” ears sported by Boesch that were immortalized forever in a local jewelry commercial that aired for nearly five years here in Houston.  However, for reasons unbeknownst to me, the book was never published. (Information supplied by a very reliable source posting on the Kayfabe Memories Houston Message Board:  the WWF’s own Dr. Tom Prichard)  However, as I was checking the board some time ago, I discovered thanks to Greg Oliver that the book was and now is available in Houston!!!  With an introduction from long time wrestling great Red Bastien written in 2001, and pictures of greats from different eras, this book is a prized possession of mine, and is a must for history buffs.    

This will not be treated as a book review, as there numerous ones out there.  If you are interested in where the book reviews are, or how to get a copy of this book, please visit the Kayfabe Memories Message Board.  Under the Houston section, there is a thread that is dedicated to discussing the book and where it can be obtained, book reviews, etc.  Our goal in this installment is to simply whet the appetite by providing some facts about Boesch and some of the things he talks about in his book.  Since the book is copyrighted, I can not provide much in the way of quotes, nor would I dare plagiarize his work.   More...
