When you want to talk history and not which spinner belt was the best or CM Punk is the greatest thing since Lou Thesz, come in here. Speaking of Thesz, Did you know: - His lifelong beef with Buddy Rogers started when Rogers bad mouthed Thesz' hero, Ed Strangler Lewis, on the road travelling together to Louisville. Rogers was angry that the promoters hired Lewis to be the referee and paid him big money that Rogers thought he and Thesz should have gotten. - His match against Rikidozan in Japan drew an 87.5 rating on Japanese tv. - His favorite match was against Dick Hutton in Pittsburgh. The rep from the state athletic commisssion knew pro wrestling was fake and he was also an amateur wrestling official and warned Thesz and Hutton before their match that he would not tolerate pro wrestling shenanigans and would come down on them hard if the match was fake. Thesz and Hutton worked a 50 minute, two out of three fall match that led the commission believing they saw a legitimate wrestling match. - His carpet importing business failed so miserably that he came out of retirement at age 56 and worked for promoter Nick Gualas for $100 a night.
