Local paper runs a great profile on the Duke of Dorchester

Kudos to the Falmouth (MA) Enterprise, which published a story on October 26 detailing the whereabouts of our favorite WWF  jobber, Pete “Duke of Dorchester” Doherty.

The article, “Duke of Dorchester Now Living the Quiet Life in Falmouth,” mentions that the 67-year-old Doherty also wore a hood as the Golden Terror in the WWWF for a short time, which I did not know.

No discussion of pro wrestling from the 1980s in Boston would be complete without tipping our hat to Doherty’s near-constant losing streak in prelim matches at the old Boston Garden (although he did occasionally get a win).  He was a huge part of the Garden’s wrestling history.
