FINALLY, a tribute to Giant Haystacks, the grizzly wrestler who succumbed to cancer the Sunday before last at the age of 52. Haystacks (rie Martin Atone) will be remembered by all 1980s Saturday afternoon devotees of ITV's World of Sport as the archnemesis of Big Daddy and other such wrestling "good guys".
However Ruane was something of a gentle giant in real life. Born of Irish Catholic stock, he remained a devout Catholic throughout his life, attending mass daily, and even refusing to wrestle on Sundays.
