Portland Wrestling and My First Night at the Portland Sports Arena
by Greg Kirk
It was the first time for live Portland Wrestling for me, and what a night it was! Lonnie Mayne headlined, and his match ended with him bleeding from the head, and then he lost it. He started bashing his head into one of the support poles. His face was covered with blood, and he started stumbling into the bleachers.
I, being all of 12 years old, was scared to death! He then ran off leaving a trail of blood behind. The big mystery for the next few weeks was "where is Lonnie Mayne?" He supposedly disappeared. Actually, he probably just went to the east coast to work for awhile, but it was a great story, and a very memorable debut for the PSA.
