JOHN1953 in hospital and Saturday 9th February in Manchester

JOHN1953 is in hospital at the momentl. I have heard that he is in intensive care. I have sent him some messages and I'm sure that those who know him will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.

He had booked Pippa"s on February 9th. This is still going ahead.
I'm hoping to be there but I don't know if I'll be able to do much wrestling. It will be good to see the others attending and catch up with them.

Here are the main details for Saturday. Please contact me for more information.

The Wrestling Factory (Pippa's) Unit 28 Wellington House Pollard Street East Manchester M40 7FS

Time: 12pm to 6pm.

God Bless John, I wish him a speedy recovery indeed. What a true gent and first class man he really is.

I'd been hoping to see him there as it had been ages since we last wrestled. Sending him good thoughts and hope he's fighting fit soon enough.
A real gent.

All good wishes to John

Now who on earth gave this a thumbs down. Admin, please expose that person

It could be- could be- someone not giving a thumbs up to the news.

Facebook had this problem. Did I really want to give someone a thumbs up because they've got a cold, or the car has broken down etc.

The thumbs up can be seen as approval or a celebration so I'm hoping someone put the thumbs down because they felt the news was sad

I'm pretending to have faith in humanity

Thanks for info Iron Bull. Just given my thumbs up and assume, please, that the thumbs down was given in error. If it was, whoever it was, please sort this out!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting John my last visit to the UK. Best wishes to him from Canada.
