Thanks for the link. This match makes the one from The Quiet Man look like a pillow fight.

Yeah, and the fourth article or so has probably the first reference to a masked wrestler. :-)

Thanks for the link!

The article that references the Masked Wrestler of Paris - most likely Theobauld Bauer -- is here:

And another early maked wrestler ... in Bucharest ...

We just added another article, this one from 1911 ...

Some entertaining facts have been divulged in the negotiations for a match between Mahmout, the Turk, and Zybysko, the Pole, and the most interesting is the fact that in the last three years there have been but three matches in Chicago that were on the square.

One was the Hackenschmidt-Gotch match, which as an exhibition was the worst ever seen. But it was honest. Another with a taste of squareness was the Mahmout-Americus contest, on fall of which was on the level. The other square bout is not exactly known.


Great line

Powell's Take Someone at the Torch wrote a good column explaining why Russo, regardless of his authority, is good for the WWF write now.
