  1. Dick Shikat (c) vs George Calza NYSAC World Heavyweight Championship November 25, 1929 New York, NY "Heavyweight Wrestling Championship" Related ------ Much more accessible than Caddock/Stetcher. I say this mainly because it's one of the earliest big matches we have a significant amount of from after the modern working style was developed, but it's also in surprisingly good quality for how old it is and it's much easier to tell the guys apart. It's still too clipped up to judge it as an overall match and the finish seems to be misplaced at the start of the video file, but what we see is some very interesting insight into the early working style. It's obvious they're trying to entertain the fans with flashy moves and theatrical selling, but the match still looks strongly influenced by amateur wrestling and strikes are noticeably absent. Feels like a cross between old school NWA title match and WoS style with Shikat in the role of the defensive champ. A match like this could probably get over just fine on the indies today with minimal modification.
