Portland Wrestlecast: Doug Masters on the end of Portland TV


You may not know former pro wrestler Doug Masters, but he worked for Portland Wrestling during the time period you probably know best (1990-91) and was part of the last Portland Wrestling television show in 1991.

In this episode of the Portland Wrestlecast, Masters talks about getting his nickname "Pretty Boy" from Roddy Piper and working with Raven, The Grappler, The Equalizer, Nord the Barbarian, "Crush" Bryan Adams, and more stars from the last days of the territory.

Masters lived at The Bomber, the infamous long-term hotel where many Portland wrestlers stayed. What was the party scene like as the territory was drying up? Masters talks about that too.

He's a strong personality that can only be found in the world of pro wrestling, and tells some fun stories about what it was like to be a wrestler at the end of the territory era.
