The venue was one of several in Florida and fans from all over the state would watch and cheer on heroes and villains.
Now, Jody Simon of Tampa, the son of The Great Malenko, is working with the Tampa Jewish Community Center & Federation to organize a fundraiser to commemorate the history of wrestling at the armory, which is being renovated with plans to reopen as a campus of the JCC late next year.

Jack Ross, executive director of the JCC said he is proud that the son of a Jewish wrestler is organizing the event. While Simon said there is no shortage of photos, fight programs and memorabilia available for display, Ross indicated that the size and prominence of the display will depend on the amount of funds raised.
