DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: 1942


On this episode of the DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show, Karl Stern continues the longform history of pro wrestling series and dives deep into the year of 1942. If you are under the mistaken impression that nothing happened in the 1940s in pro wrestling, you will be surprised as the industry pushes on despite World War II.

Personalities discussed on the show include Wild Bill Longson (the originator of the piledriver), Lou Thesz, the return of "fat and 50" Ed "Strangler" Lewis, Orville Brown, Steve "Crusher" Casey, and more.
