DOUBLE DVD-R Set
Don Fargo, along with wrestling "brother" Jackie Fargo, headlined Madison Square Garden on March 30, 1957. Their match against Argentina Rocca and Miguel Perez drew 20,125 people and over $60,000, the biggest attendance and gate in the Garden up to that time.
Besides teaming with Jackie, Don formed several tag teams during his career with wrestling's finest talents, including Greg Valentine, Ray Stevens, Rene Goulet, Jim Dillon, Ron Garfield, Eric Pederson, Chris Colt, and several others.
In this no-holds barred interview, Don relates his career and tells tales of the road that he experienced during his career as a pro wrestler. If you enjoy this interview just half as much as Don enjoyed telling it, you'll have a ball.
