04/10/50 Pittsburgh, PA Lou Thesz vs. Enrique Torres

Ugh...I don't get this...Big ads and preview paragraphs in all 3 Pittsburgh newspapers. (Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Pittsburgh Press). And no results in any of them, I checked the 11th and 12th in all 3 papers. I found one little blurb on the 12th, but no result

09/22 Alton, IL Lou Thesz vs. Bill Longson
09/22 Gary, IN Lou Thesz vs. Rudy Kay
09/22 Greenville, IL Lou Thesz vs. Warren Bockwinkel

OK...I sort of solved this one, but still no result.

In the Alton IL newspaper, there is an ad on Sept 20th that says "Featuring Thesz AND Bill Longson". But if you read the print of the ad, it says Friday September 22, Greenville IL Fairgrounds... Thesz vs Warren Bockwinkel, Wild Bill Longson vs Babe Zaharias, Gino Vagnone vs Chris Zaharias, and Al Lovelock vs Carlos Moreno.

Alton is about an hour away from Greenville
----------------
Thez is advertised as facing Rudy Kay in South Bend IN on Wednesday 9/20/50, but he was definitely in Montreal that night facing Yukon Eric.  (Can't find any results from South Bend)
Pat O'Dowdy vs Jack Carter
Farmer Don Marlin vs Fritz Schnabel
World's Heavyweight Champion, Lou Thez vs Rudy Kay

??10/17/63 Chattanooga, TN Lou Thesz vs. Mike Gallagher

This definitely didn't happen. Thesz was in Corpus Christi, TX that night facing Polo Torres.
Advertised in the paper all week...can't find a result
And wrestlingdata currently shows no record of Thesz ever facing Doc or Mike in a singles match

According to the 5/24/40 Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Thesz won 2-0

Metheny was disqualified in first fall
