[1947-03-20-Boston, MA] Mildred Burke vs Mae Weston

Recommended Posts

This is from a newsreel, so it's heavily clipped and we have to deal with an irritating sexist narrator, but at least we get a rare glimpse of early women's wrestling. There's a certain amount of intensity in every little thing they do and there's no wasted movement. This makes minute things like attempting a lock up or applying a headlock fun to watch. This certainly makes me curious to check out more women's wrestling from this era.
