Chicago Old-Timey Wrestling Archive

Hey Scott--

Just as I received my panicked email from WWE about the expiration of my Network sub, the fine people at Chicago Film Archives announced the launch of their "Wrestling From Chicago" YouTube channel. They've uploaded over a hundred videos so far, most of them consisting of film footage shot in the 1950s. Lots of matches with Vern Gagne, Lou Thesz, Dick the Bruiser, Angelo Poffo and their contemporaries, all free and all unlikely to be seen anywhere else. 

The channel is here.

CFA's announcement is here

A close look at their collection of wrestling films is here.

Any chance you'll review these once you run out of mid-90s RAWs?


​I'll definitely add it to my subscription list, but reviewing that era is way out of my comfort zone.  ​
