Wrestling from Marigold Arena
From The TV IV
Wrestling from Marigold Arena was a professional wrestling program that aired on the DuMont Television Network. Airing from its debut on September 17, 1949 until it ended production as a network show around March 1955 (it continued locally on Chicago station WGN-TV until 1957), it was produced by DuMont for Chicago-based National Wrestling Alliance promoter Fred Kohler, who presented the show from the Marigold Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
Wrestling from Marigold Arena was the last notable wrestling show to air on broadcast network television at the time of its cancellation on DuMont in 1955 due to DuMont beginning to wind down its operations by that point. When the show ended, wrestling disappeared from network television until the 1985 debut of the World Wrestling Federation's Saturday Night's Main Event on NBC.
