Dr. John Dropkick Murphy & Nick Lutze vs. LaVerne Baxter & Hardboiled Haggerty (Late 1930's)

The earliest tag I've seen video of. So early tags hadn't even been invented yet and it's basically a tornado match. Instead of doing lengthy control segments, it's worked more as two singles matches that sometimes intersect with the occasional double team move. As you'd expect, it's a bit confusing to keep track of what's going on at times, though, to their credit, they did work that into the psychology. Kind of sad this is apparently the only footage of Dropkick Murphy as he looks like a pretty good brawler and, for the first guy to do it, throws a pretty nice dropkick.

This can't be from the 30's. Haggerty was born in 1925.
This is pretty cool. I thought the announcer and ref did a great job in putting this over. Murphy looked like a great face with awesome forearm shots and I liked Haggerty's various clubs on people.
I really like tag team tornado matches and ECW's Double Jeopardy match which didn't take off. Really would love to see more.

Pat McClary (Hard Boiled Haggerty) was born in 1908. Nick Lutz retired in 1940 so the date is good.
