All i have to say is wow. this guy knows his stuff. i saved the thread so i can reread it. i had no clue farmer burns first name was martin (i have his reprinted book of physical culture and catch wrestling that matt furey put out). has he written any books on the subject? also, since im talking to the administrator, what would you think of adding something related to old school wrestling, such as catch as can catch? thanks. bye

Oh yeah, Gary is the co-editor of the great "Wrestling Title Histories" book, which is of course the biggest info source for my website on title histories.

If the topics are very informative and would add valuable information to the researches of title histories, I wouldn't mind having them here. Only pre-1990s topics, though.
