New England:Tony Santos Big Time Wrestling Title Histories?

Postby Bulldog » 2006/10/11 Wed 11:27 pm

Does anybody have any title histories for this promotion?
Wrestling title historie doesn't have much on their title history
I know they had a US Title and World title and Eastern Tag Championship.
I can't find much on the history of the US Title
Frank Scarpa held the championship most of the time but I have read some results Bull Curry,Hans Shmidt and Gypsy Joe Dorsetti at one point also holding the US title.
Any help would sure be great
