  1. Gus Sonnenberg (c) vs Joe Malcewicz AWA World Heavyweight Championship March 15, 1929 "Sonnenberg versus Malcewicz" http://mirc.sc.edu/islandora/object/usc%3A19666 Related ---------- Great to see these guys actually working holds instead of just the all-action highlights you usually get with matches from this era. I remember reading the thing that spurred on the creation of the modern working style wasn't the slow mat-work but audiences not liking the standing Greco-Roman stuff. If that's true, this match gives a nice call back to those days with them putting a lot more time and struggle in the collar-and-elbow tie-ups than we're used to seeing, and I loved that as someone who hates seeing guys treating those tie-ups as a mere formality. The mat stuff also looks cool and shooty with guys looking for submissions. Feels like a proto-shoot style match, just without the strikes.
