Classic Bouts '62-'63

Toronto was an epicenter for Wrestling History in the early 60's with some big bouts that led into the formation of the WWWF.

The July 12 1962 match-up of Rogers and Bruno is posted elsewhere on this blog, this is their rematch on Aug 2 when Bruno wins but won't accept the title due to the circumstances.

In 1963 we would see Lou Thesz beat Rogers to regain the NWA Title and Rogers would then go on to be the first WWWF champ. Clips below from Jan 24 1963
