On this episode of my 1000 Hours focus on the pioneer era of pro wrestling, I go back even further to the pre-pioneer era just before the U.S. Civil War.
This week, I uncover more about the first known self-promoted pro wrestling star: Charles, The King of Wrestling. If you missed last week’s initial look, here you go.
The pre-pioneer era was a fascinating time period in American history from which the seeds of what would become American showman style wrestling were sown.
Enjoy this week’s DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show.
