I kicked his legs out from under him, then lifted him up by his hair, held him upside down, and dropped him on top of his skull.Then when I looked at my hands, I realized that they were covered in hair, from Savile. He had ripped huge locks from her scalp.’ The wrestler added that when they met in 1971, Savile used to talk about how young girls waited for him outside his dressing room.And he added: ‘All the wrestlers on the circuit used to brag about his conquests. But Savile used to go on and on about the young girls waiting in line for him outside his dressing room.He’d pick the ones he wanted and tell the rest, ‘Screw, he’s coming back tomorrow night.’
