  1. I wonder if this Donovan could be related to Chick Donovan, a worker I used to see on the southeastern circuit when I was a kid?

      Looks like Chick Donovan’s real last name was Kelley. There was also another Jack Donovan that wrestled in the ’60s and ’70s whose real last name was Dunnavant. I don’t believe there is any relation between any of these three Donovans.
