09/18/56 San Francisco, CA Billy Watson beat Lou Thesz in a 2 of 3 falls match

Not sure if this is considered a count out or a DQ...

Thesz takes first (22:28)
Watson takes second (26:56)

"Third and deciding fall went to Watson when the referee counted Thesz out of the ring for refusing to break a hold in 5:55"

03/06/54 Indianapolis, IN Lou Thesz beat Buddy Rogers

I don't think this happened. Thesz fought Rogers in Indianapolis on 2/20/54.

The next show was on Tuesday March 9th, the main event was Kowalski vs Eckert. Nothing in the Indianapolis Star or Indianapolis News about a Thesz-Rogers rematch on the 6th.
Thesz was out from March 8th to March 11th due to an elbow injury. Guess we can assume he may have wrestled some where between his last appearance on March 5th in Winnipeg. 
Also over at the WCMB Thesz board, Steve Yohe posted a handful of 1964 Thesz results from Ottawa Ontario that weren't in his record book.

10/01/43 Houston, TX Louis Thesz draw Jack McDonald

Thesz was the special referee on 10/1/43, after wrestling Jack McDonald in the semifinal. He was not the referee on 9/24 and he did not wrestle that night either. Longson defended against McGuirk two weeks in a row

02/14/38 Omaha, NE Louis Thesz vs. Steve Savage
02/14/38 Memphis, TN Louis Thesz draw Dorv Roche

Obviously he did not work both shows....

Actually from the February 14, 1938 Omaha World Herald

"THESZ ON THE SHELF, Mat Card Postponed"
Louis Thesz, scheduled to meet Steve Savage in tonight's city auditorium rassling show, sustained injuries in his losing match with Crusher Casey at Boston last week that will prevent him coming to Omaha. On Sunday, promoter Pat McGill called off the program. Thesz will appear here sometime in March, McGill said.
-------------------------------------------------------
Thesz finally got to Omaha on May 16, 1938.  This was 2/3 falls

Lou Thesz defeats Steve Savage [2-1] (45:11)
 Thesz defeats Savage (26:36)

There are no records of this rematch happening in Boston. Can anyone prove me wrong?

03/05/38 Boston, MA Steve Casey beat Louis Thesz

After February 11th, the next Boston shows on record are 2/25, 3/11/ and 3/25/38.

Casey defended the title on 3/11 against Seelie Samara.

He defended it against Everett Marshall on 3/25/38

02/03/39 Houston, TX Steve Casey beat Louis Thesz

AWA World Heavyweight Title Best Two Out Of Three Falls Match
Steve Casey (c) defeats Lou Thesz [2-1]
- Thesz defeats Casey (18:00)
- Casey defeats Thesz
- Casey defeats Thesz

"The deciding fall came after Thesz turned to an airplane spin. He picked up the husky champion, spun him around into the air and hurled him to the mat. He tried it again and this time, he backed into the ropes and both tumbled out of the ring. Casey returned unhurt, but Thesz received a badly bruised left leg. He never recovered, but he did fight Casey off for around 10 minutes, before being forced to give up with a stepover toe hold"

05/16/46 Corpus Christi, TX Louis Thesz vs. Tug Carlson

This did not happen. Show was also scheduled to have Gorgeous George vs Leroy McGuirk.

From the May 19, 1946 Corpus Christi Caller-Times

"Variety and roughness in sufficient quantity to slake Town Hall fans two weeks appetite for grappling is promoter Barney Myers is offering here this Thursday night (May 23rd), after a shutdown last week during the quarantine"

There was an outbreak of polio in Corpus Christi that week.

05/20/40 Shreveport, LA Louis Thesz beat Ivan Managoff by reverse decision in a 2 of 3 falls match

This is not correct. According to the May 21, 1940 Shreveport Times

"MANAGOFF Gains Victory in Mat Feature Monday. Commission reverses referee's decision in favor of IVAN"


"Thesz's flying feet caught referee Sarpolis and the official was floored.   Managoff slammed Thesz and pinned his shoulders, but Sarpolis was unable to see the fall. Recovering quickly, Thesz slammed Managoff and pinned his shoulders and received the fall and the match from referee Sarpolis. However, the commissioner's decision reversed Sarpolis's ruling and the official verdict went to Managoff"
