Ok so basically I wanna attempt to put together a master list of all existing pre-1970 footage from various promotions but am not sure what the best place on the forum would be for this, I wanna cover WWWF, CWC, EMLL, JWA and tons of other places like Fred Kohlers Chicago territory and the IWE, I'd like to put it in a place where the people who most likely can contribute will see it, can anyone help?

This works, as long as you're just listing the matches without revealing sources. :)

How do you mean? Do you mean I can't put say a commercial release next to a match to signify where it came from?

Good idea.  I wonder how much, if any, of that footage would have fallen into PD by now.

There's a bunch of stuff out there from before 1920 as well. Nothing complete to my knowledge.

This works, as long as you're just listing the matches without revealing sources. :)

How do you mean? Do you mean I can't put say a commercial release next to a match to signify where it came from?

 

 

I mean, don't identify bootleggers.

I haven't found anything complete as of yet, I'm gonna add what I HAVE found on here at some point. I'd guess the earliest COMPLETE Lucha that exists would be the matches that were taped in Mexico and then aired on NJPW World Pro Wrestling in the late 1970s.

Here is what I've found so far from CWC, this is an ongoing project so if anyone can think of something that isn't on this list then feel free to contribute, if I come across anything else I will add it as I go along -

 

Capitol Wrestling Corporation (1953 - 1963).

 

1955

 

1) Wild Red Berry -vs- Angelo Martinelli (Wrestling From Turner's Arena - June 29th, 1955 - mislabelled 1949 - CineGraphic Channel).

2) Sky Low Low & Ivan the Terrible -vs- Lord Littlebrook & Bob Bradley (Wrestling From Turner's Arena - 1955 - mislabelled 1949 - CineGraphic Channel).

 

NOTE: The above 2 matches were part of a test reel/pilot episode that Vince McMahon Sr shopped around to get his Wrestling From Capital Arena TV programme on the air in Washington DC, as far as I know this is the oldest WWE TV footage in existence.

4) Arnold Skaaland interview (Wrestling From Capital Arena - June 12th, 1958).
5) Chief Big Heart & Chief Kit Fox interview (Wrestling From Capital Arena - June 12th, 1958).
6) Jerry & Eddie Graham -vs- Luis Martinez & Buddy Rosen (Wrestling From Capital Arena - July 10th, 1958).
7) Eddie & Jerry Graham interview (Wrestling From Capital Arena - 1958 -  Wrestling's Greatest Villains: The Golden Era).

8) Eddie & Jerry Graham -vs- Antonino Rocca & Miguel Perez (1958 - 2/3 Falls Match - Wrestling's Greatest Villains: The Golden Era/American Wrestling Classics Volume 4).

 

1960

 

1) Buddy Rogers interview & Buddy Rogers -vs- Abe Jacobs (Wrestling From Capital Arena - November 17th, 1960 - Wrestling's Greatest Villains: "The Golden Era").

 

Misc

 

1) Ricki Starr -vs- Karl Von Hess (Wrestling From Capital Arena - 1950s - Wrestling's Greatest Heroes: The Golden Era).
2) Bruno Sammartino -vs- Gorilla Monsoon (1960s - Greatest Sports Legends: Bruno Sammartino).

Corey lists this as being from Long Island City, NY

 

06/09/32 Unknown Ed Strangler Lewis vs Dick Shikat

 

----Actually, Steve Yohe also has it being there

 

Lewis was brought into New York City in June and, right away, was booked into a contenders match with Dick Shikat on June 9, 1932 in Long Island City's (Queens) new Madison Square Garden Bowl. The winner would get a title match with Londos.
