Titles in Toronto 1922 - 1984

Pro Wrestling is a game of titles, most every wrestler in the classic era held a title of some sort somewhere sometime. Below is a list of Title's that were defended in Toronto

Many wrestlers used old or fictitious title claims for billing purposes. Fred Atkins in his early days here was Australian champ, Carlos Rocha was the Portuguese champ, Emile Dupree billed as Maritimes champ and many, many more. For the purpose of this list I just listed those titles that were defended and officially recognized.

First batch is Toronto's own , second the rest , I included Dave McKigney's North American Title and Tag Titles as they were a presence in and around Toronto for many years.
