Jan 10 1957

1957 was a good year on the Toronto Wrestling scene. Looking at results from across North America, it was a good year all around, maybe one of the best of the era. This night at MLG sees a stacked main event tag bout with a former World champ alongside 3 future world champs.

Whipper Watson, by this time a 2 time former champ, teams with Pat O'Connor vs Buddy Rogers and Gene Kiniski, all of whom would get a run with the NWA Title. Former Boxing champ Jersey Joe Walcott completes the champs theme by refereeing the bout.
