Ancient Wrestling Footage

You never know what you might find on youtube. Here is a demo from 1905. All the way back to the Gotch-Hackenschmidt era.



The basics are still pretty much the same in the modern day. Despite the adding in of elements of brawling, lucha, and martial arts, catch wrestling remains the basic foundation of pro wrestling.

"If anyone asks you if you've paid your dues, you tell 'em the check is in the mail."

The interesting thing about this video is that it is before wrestling was worked. These are just two shooters going at it.

1:28 on the left, he uses his head to spin and break a hold. I've never seen that before.

Interesting video, good find. Youtube has definitely came up trumps for wrestling fans.
