DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: Formation of the NWA


In this episode of our continuing series on the history of pro wrestling, we look at the years 1946-1948 and see the build up and the formation of the National Wrestling Alliance.

Why were there so many World Champions at this point? How did the NWA really form?  Was Orville Brown really the first NWA World Champion -- and why him? Plus, we talk about names like Sandor Szabo, Sonny Myers, Frank Sexton, Lou Thesz, Steve Casey, and more.
