Ian Campbell in his Coronation Street appearance

Ian Campbell (1924 - 10th January 1993) was a 20-stone Scottish professional wrestler who played himself in Episode 398 (5th October 1964) of Coronation Street in which he wrestled and defeated Stan Ogden (a.k.a "Ogden the Terrible") at the Viaduct Sporting Club. A good friend of the internationally-renowned former World Heavyweight Champion, "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers, after his appearance on the Street, Ian went on to win the British Heavyweight Championship in 1966 in his native Scotland.

Ian's other non-wrestling television appearances include Nearest and Dearest and Crown Court, and he had a small but memorable part in the 1973 horror film The Wicker Man.
