YOUTUBE CLASSIC: THE OLDEST EXISTING FOOTAGE KNOWN OF A PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING MATCH, 1920's CADDOCK VS. STECHER IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

By Mike Johnson on 2020-03-25 08:15:00

The video above features rare footage from the second Earl Caddock-Joe Stecher match for the professional wrestling world title, held on January, 30th,1920  at the second Madison Square Garden in New York City. Stecher pinned Caddock in 2:05:00 (again, NOT a typo) using a wristlock and his finishing hold, the body scissors, so this is not the complete bout.  It is, however, some the oldest professional wrestling match footage that was filmed and still exists today.
