“AND IN THIS CORNER, from PARTS UNKNOWN” with wrestling historian George Schire

April 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


On April 2, 2024 at 6:30pm wrestling historian and author George Schire returns to the Washington County Heritage Center to share the identities and stories of wrestling’s mystery men.
In the old territory days of professional wrestling, there was a highly populated city called, “Parts Unknown”.  It couldn’t be found on any map, because no one knew where it was located.  It was as mysterious as the wrestlers who were billed from this seemingly lost city.  
Even more intriguing was that these wrestlers were all masked!  Their faces covered so they couldn’t be recognized for a variety of given reasons. 
Wrestling fans were told by promoters that they didn’t know who these masked hombre’s were.  They didn’t know their names, their weights, or anything else about them.  And the fans bought it and ate it up! 
JOIN US APRIL 2ND for this behind the scenes visit to “Parts Unknown”.

About George:

As a kid, Schire found a way to escape the troubles of his life by becoming a wrestling fan, glued to the TV set and then later traveling to see every live “card” in the Twin Cities and many more throughout the region. Over the years he has been involved in all aspects of the sport, and he now offers detailed, behind-the-scenes accounts of important matches from 1954 to 1990 and stories of wrestler personalities, both in and out of the ring. He shares his own extensive collection of wrestling memorabilia— photographs, program covers, newspaper clippings, and other ephemera—to honor the hardworking characters who forged serial storylines onstage week after week and who thrilled fans by carrying out their plots in the ring, with blood, sweat, tears, and high-flying body slams for all.
