Mana: 
05/?? Peoria, IL Lou Thesz beat Dick Raines

I am pretty sure this did not happen.

In the May 6, 1951 Peoria Journal Star, they are advertising a midget match taking place the next night.

"They do everything the big boys do except on a smaller scale. They don't use the ropes with abandon like Lou Thesz and Dick Raines do, because they are built to close to the canvas"

May 7, 1951 Peoria IL

Carl Engstrom defeats Jack Britton (18:55)
Walter Palmer defeats The Thing (30:51)
Irish Jackie defeats Mighty Fritz [2-1]

There does not appear to be any other mention of Lou Thesz in the Peoria Journal Star at any time in 1951

I am almost 100% certain that neither one of these matches happened.

12/30/49 Houston, TX Louis Thesz beat Wladek Kowalski in a 2 of 3 falls match

12/31/50 Houston, TX Lou Thesz beat Wladek Kowalski in a 2 of 3 falls match

I cannot find a record of either one of these matches.
Nothing about wrestling in the 12/30/49 Houston Chronicle

12/29/50 Houston Chronicle -- "There will be no wrestling at the City Auditorium tonight, but the sport resumes its weekly billing next Friday (Jan 5, 1951)

Wrestlingdata shows their first encounter as January 6, 1950 in St Louis
Matches in Houston on 5/5/50 and 5/19/50

This was actually a 60 minute draw

Results from the June 26, 1953 Amarillo Globe Times

"Thesz refused to agree to the 90 minute time limit, and in a dressing room altercation threatened to pull out if the contest wasn't cut to one hour. Sam D. George, state commissioner waived the 90 minute requirement so that the match would go on."

Thesz defeats Gagne (27:50)
Gagne defeats Thesz (40:13)
Draw (60:00)
