09/25/47 Chattanooga, TN Louis Thesz draw Buddy Rogers(90:00) in a 2 of 3 falls match

This is not a 90 minute draw.

According to the 9/26/47 Chattanooga Daily Times, Rogers beats Thesz in 30 seconds to take first fall, Thesz evens it up. Followed up with a freakish ending in which the matmen knocked each other out for referee Howard Brown's 10 count to a draw

This is a little confusing, but the results are in the 6/28/48 issue of the Chattanooga Daily Times.


6/27/48 Chattanooga, TN Louis Thesz vs. Buddy Rogers in a 2 of 3 falls match

TEARS FLOWED LIKE WINE

"The bobby-soxers tears flowed like wine last night, their Buddy Rogers just couldn't win...the bobby soxers were the losers"

"Rogers won the first fall after about 20 minutes. Thesz worked fast and furiously for 5 minutes, spun him like an airplane, dropped him, referee Howard Brown did the rest"

And then--- it doesn't really say what happened in the 3rd fall, but obviously from the headline, Rogers lost. Here is the last paragraph.

"Rogers had a new trick last night. He went into a barrel roll from a standing position, twirled Thesz like a sack of flour and then went into a flip, flattening his foe. We'll believe this is practical when we see Big Ben Morgan doing it with Jack Dillon"

01/22 Chattanooga, TN Louis Thesz vs. Ray Villmer in a 2 of 3 falls match

According to the 1/23/48 issue of the Chattanooga Daily Times, it was a draw.

"Thesz airplane spun Villmer into dizziness to win the first fall. When Thesz tried the same thing again, Villmer turned on him, and Thesz tumbled and was pinned."

Earlier in the story, it says.... "Last night they went at it again, and the draw tilt was packed with roughness and mat ability"

02/10/49 Chattanooga, TN Louis Thesz vs. Larry Moquin in a 2 of 3 falls match with Ed ‘Strangler’ Lewis as special referee

Results in the 2/11/49 Chattanooga Daily Times

"Thesz won the first fall by working on Moquin's shoulder. The challenger had crashed into a ring post to cause it harm.... Fall 2, he began hammering on the ailing shoulder again. Moquin draped himself across the center rope, and Lewis raised Thesz's hand as the winner, about two and a half minutes had elapsed"

I find no evidence of this match happening in Detroit at this time.

08/24/48 Louisville, KY Louis Thesz vs. Wladislaw Talun in a 2 of 3 falls match

I cannot find anything about a show on this date in the Louisville Courier Journal.

As stated above, Thesz faced Talun on 9/7/48, probably a non title match

I don't think this is correct.

09/15/48 Chicago, IL Louis Thesz beat Antonino Rocca

I didn't see anything about this show in the 9/16/48 Chicago Tribune.

Also, according to the Legacyofwrestling site,

Rocca made an appearance for Fred Kohler in Chicago on Friday, April 29, 1949 at the
International Amphitheatre. Kohler “introduced” Rocca to America, as stated in a program. He
faced Fred Von Schacht.
