by Mark Long

Paul Boesch, radio announcer and television commentator for Houston Wrestling, purchased the Gulf Athletic Club in Houston, Texas from the widow of former promoter Morris Siegel. Numerous outside promoters approached Mrs. Siegel, making generous offers for the territory, but she was inclined to sell to Paul. Boesch, a former wrestler who was forced into retirement after being injured in a car accident, would run the territory for more than twenty years, enjoying great financial success.
