Big Daddy

A photo from the 1980s, shared by Kevin Creechan. Pictured is former wrestling star, Big Daddy on a visit to Blantyre Sports Centre. Its unknown why he was there and what year this was, so if you know, please do tell.

Big Daddy, (real name Shirley Crabtree, Jr), was an English professional wrestler with a record-breaking 64 inch chest. He worked for Joint Promotions and the British Wrestling Federation. Initially a villain, he teamed with Giant Haystacks. He was born in 1930 making him in his 50s here. He died young in 1997, a year before colleague Giant Haystacks who was also at the Sports Centre that day (possibly 1986?)
