We close out the 1800s in my continued look at pro wrestling at Madison Square Garden by looking at the only pro wrestling show held there in 1898 before it resumed in 1900.

Ernest Rober has returned and we find out that he is the hand-picked champion for William Muldoon. We also discover clues as to why the original Strangler, Evan Lewis, never wrestled at MSG. We then discuss one of the best early heavyweights, Tom Jenkins.

Enjoy this latest episode of DragonKing Karl.
