Thanks for sharing I have always been a fan and history of our great sport.  Growing up in Waterloo, IA I was fortunate to have sat in living rooms of some of the greats and listened to stories of wrestling greats such as Tom Peckam, the Buzzard brothers plus countless stories on West Waterloo studs.  Good times!
