Back in the day, Vancouver was a regular stop on the WWF (now WWE) touring schedule, offering monthly cards at the Pacific Coliseum. As a kid, I got to see some great shows featuring the likes of The British Bulldogs, The Hart Foundation, Hulk Hogan, and Randy “Macho Man” Savage.
More often than not, I would be accompanied by my journalist father, who I usually nagged into bringing a camera so I caould enjoy some keepsakes of the action later. Every so often, I still delve into the big box of photos. I recently scanned a few and thought I’d share them with all you fine folks out there.
