Mildred Burke was very successful hiring pro-wrestlers for her nude bouts in the 1970s (or 1960s??). Up to now they are my standard in that category of women combat. I thought those fighters had not appeared at any relevant broadcast pro-wrestling event; however, I have recently found that at least one of the women in the Mildred´s roster, Sandy Partlow, had shown up in a ring in front of the public.
In the video one can firstly watch Sandy against Kandi Maloy, Dawn and Wendi Richter following the scripts and wearing the outfits of that time. Then, already working for Ms. Burke, in a bikini ring wrestling against Cheryl Day (who I think participated in broadcast fights as well) that evolves to a nude bout but keeping the pro-wrestling moves and holds.
Two curiosities in this footage:
- the hammer lock gestures by Sandy in the fight against Kandi is basically the same in the nude section;
- Cheryl Day and Sandy wear scanty masks to... protect their identity ???
Note: a Blog´s friend sent to me this link with information on Sandy Partlow career.
