Bobby Managoff (1916 - 2002)

Post by Hisaharu Tanabe » 2002/04/05 Fri 1:03 pm

Former National Wrestling Association World Heavyweight champion Bobby Managoff passed away on April 3rd. He was the world champ during the WWII when many wrestlers were not available.

Lou Thesz's famous 936 consecutive win record started on the day after he lost to Managoff in Buffalo on 1948/06/11.

Managoff was indeed the living history of pro-wrestling.

RIP.
