Ok so basically I wanna attempt to put together a master list of all existing pre-1970 footage from various promotions, I wanna cover WWWF, CWC, EMLL, JWA and tons of other places like Fred Kohlers Chicago territory and the IWE, I've decided to place all updates here in this post so the listings are easier for everyone to locate, I'll still be posting the normal way too so whenever anything new is added to the list people will know.

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.

Gotch/Hackensmidt 2 is out there somewhere. It was released on film. But no one has found it.

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.

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.
