The October dates are the correct ones.

Yea...I don't think he was going to Montreal while stationed during WWII...

1942
01/27 Montreal, Quebec Lou Thesz draw Ed “Strangler” Lewis

and a year later....1943
01/27 Montreal, Quebec Lou Thesz draw Ed “Strangler” Lewis

(1942 is obviously the correct one)

The 1942 match is wrong.

Any idea why Thesz wrestled twice on 7/11/45 in Portland and three times on 7/31/45 in Tacoma?

07/11 Portland, OR Lou Thesz beat Ted Christy
07/11 Portland, OR Lou Thesz beat Fritz Schnabel by DQ

07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Jim Wright
07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Morris Shapiro
07/31 Tacoma, WA Lou Thesz beat Seelie Samara

Double listing - Hartford CT

1938

Lou Thesz is not believed to have wrestled any matches between 11/5/45 and 3/26/46 (military service?)
1946
01/19 Hartford, CT Lou Thesz beat George Clark

The Portland one was a tournament, and the Tacoma one almost certainly was as well. I wouldn't question anyone wrestling more than one match in one night, as it's almost always a tournament, which was a very popular gimmick.

The more obvious mistake here is George Clark wrestling in the USA in 1946.

9/11/46, 2/20/47, 4/16/47 and 11/26/47, this is called the Montreal World Title, not the AWA (Boston) title.

1947 --  Duplicate, 8/29 is correct
08/23 Atlanta, GA Lou Thesz beat Ray Villmer08/29 Atlanta, GA Lou Thesz beat Ray Villmer

Double listing
1949
02/10 St. Louis, MO Lou Thesz beat Antonino Rocca

02/25 St. Louis, MO Lou Thesz beat Antonino Rocca

The second one is correct. Thesz faced Larry Moquin in Chattanooga on 2/10/49
Rocca defeated Bill Longson by DQ in St Louis on this date.


1950 Memphis
02/27 Memphis, TN Lou Thesz beat Wladek Kowalski
03/27 Memphis, TN Lou Thesz beat Wladek Kowalski
04/03 Memphis, TN Lou Thesz beat Wladek Kowalski
February and April are correct.
On March 27, 1950 Thesz faced Bill Longson in Wichita KS

I believe this is also a duplicate. Looks like 3/30 is correct.
1950
03/03 Toronto, Ontario Lou Thesz beat Seelie Samara

03/30 Toronto, Ontario Lou Thesz beat Seelie Samara

This has to be an error, also 1950.

07/23 Chicago, IL Lou Thesz beat Don Leo Jonathan

Don Leo Jonathan had barely started his career in 1950 and didn't start wrestling in Chicago until 1954

1950

07/05 Minneapolis, MN Lou Thesz beat Bronko Nagurski

07/05 Minneapolis, MN Lou Thesz beat Ben Morgan

The correct result is Thesz wrestled Morgan in Nashville on July 5, 1950. Don't know where the Minneapolis result came from
