    Can some give me some info on Lena Blair, when she wrestled, and is she still wrestling? I don’t know much about her, but she seems to be on a few old tapes.

    Cheers!

    Lena Blair aka Barbara Swann was the cousin of Monty Swann. After starting her career in the UK in the early 70s she then travelled to the US (hence her all-in style) and Japan (hence her habit of dragging her opponent out of the ring and throwing her into the crowd at regular intervals!!). In my view, Lena was a wrestler years ahead of her time, the Rollerball Rocco of ladies wrestling. Lena retired in the early 80s but made a comeback in the late 80s with a slimmer, more muscular phsyique having taken up gym-work and bodybuilding. She challenged Klondyke Kate unsuccessfully for the ladies title before quitting the sport for good in the early 90s.

    I completely agree with ‘Patriot’ about Lena Blair or Leather Lena as she usually appeared in this area.

    I only saw her a few times and she always ‘tore the house down’.

    A female Mark Rocco is a perfect description of her style.

    I particularly remember her and Klondyke Kate battling one another all around the hall in a match at Bath. This was back in the days when fighting amongst the crowd just was not done!

    Great stuff!!

    A very underrated performer.

    No relation at all…Lena (Barbara Swann) was a very nice lady, she worked a show for a friend of mine and we arranged her accomodation after..a really nice girl….also wrestled as Lena Stromm and billed as the Swedish Ladies Champion.

    Rusty Blair Scotish girl (Carole Taylor) now living in Rhyl.
