A Walk Through History...

Since I've been quarintined for almost two months in NYC with the lack of good live wrestling to watch I've spend a lot of hours delving into the past. Far past my own years into the deep and rich history of Pro Rasslin. I am creating this thread as a place to share Classic wrestling videos, matches, events or youtube accounts worth watching.

I'll start off with a true classic.



2/23/50 Chicago International Ampitheatre

(promoter: Fred Kohler) (referees: Jack Dempsey, Tony Hadjich)
(7,638 fans) (gate: $30,265.01)
(Benefit: Chicago Heart Association) (received
10 percent of the net - $2,328)
Note: The show expected to draw a gate of $40,000

(info from Legacyofwrestling.com)

Here we have the two f'n carved in stone legends. The quality is beautiful and professionally remastered. If you have time I highly encourage you to enjoy this match from start to finish. Give it a chance, invest in the holds. This is a style that is so much more active in many ways than what we have today. And I encourage you to actually find a rest hold amongst this match where the psycology is to break your opponent down for a pin with a headlock or to grind out a sub with a hammerlock. If this match got stars I'd say it would be at least 4.

This is Bobby Davis. Are you a fan of Jim Cornette or Bobby Heenan, well they certainly watched Bobby Davis. Manager to Jersey's greatest star Buddy Rogers. Watch here as he cuts a rare promo and sets the stage for years to come on heel promotion.

Are you thirsty for wrestling knowledge? Do you love documentaries? Well check out this account. Here we have a huge wrestling fan who has made mini docs on all (and working) wrestling territories. Here is the story of Capitol Wrestling aka WWE. He has 26 docs so far on his account that he's made for us, enjoy them! I'd reccomend you start with this one as it breaks down all of the NWA territories from the beginning.

Now for something a little more current. I am becomming OBSESSED with WWA Indianapolis. It's the outlaw territory ran by Wilbur Snyder and Dick The Bruiser. The quality of wrestling and production is fantastic. They seemed to get all of the stars to go up against or with Crusher and Bruiser. Really fantastic promotion that lasted a very long time. They haven't made an original wrestling doc about this version of WWA yet.

Okay so the next one is a whopper. This is IWA based in Ohio, which was made from the ashed of the IWF which was an attempt at a national promotion to rival AWA, NWA and WWWF, and it failed. But it's really good! This video I'm posting is time marked to a specific match, we will get into that in a second. The whole video is worth watching it's really fantastic. The first match is a Pampero Firpo as a baby face, watch the promo after the squash!

Speaking of squash... hehe... remember on Darkside when Shultz was talking about Herb Welch and the level of training they receieved. Well here we got a real old school squash. If you watch I assume you will see the same story I see. A Shultz style rassler who is testing out what looks to be a rookie who hasn't been clued in that this is supposed to be a work. This is one of the most real squashes I've seen. Enjoy as Larry (Anderson?) trains this guy on the fly in the ring. This gets brutal.
