Thesz disputed that loss to Rogers until the day he died. I kid you not. Newspapers did report Rogers beat Thesz.

I can confirm this. When Thesz was still living in Norfolk, the Virginian-Pilot ran several articles on him and he always denied he ever lost to Buddy Rogers. In one of the articles, the newspaper after another of his denials quipped, "The record books show differently."
