Female Wrestler - Barbara Baker

Barbara Baker

This native of West Virginia was an athletic and buxom battler and fought in the 50s and 60s with the greatest legends in professional women's wrestling.
She had a fiery temper and her impressive ring knowledge saved her pretty face in many close calls with the toughest of female villains.
She was the wife of 'Ripper' Roy Collins.
Barbara had a series of mixed tag team contests with Doug Gilbert and Kay Noble.

Barbara was in my 1949 graduating class from Stonewall Jackson HS in Charleston WV. Our alumni group has been listing her as 'deceased' for many years; however, I was told by someone connected with Pro Wrestling (can't remember who) that although she had broken her neck, she is alive and well.
