[1931-01-09-Chicago, IL] Ed Don George vs Jack Wagner

Really dig this. Feels like a BJJ exhibition match in that they're clearly feeding themselves into each other's moves, but there's still a pretty shooty feel to everything. Lots of really cool grappling on display here, including a banana split attempt towards the end of the file. Also interesting hearing the violinist during this as I had assumed before having live music during matches was just a new gimmick thought up by indy promotions in recent years. A bit hard to tell these guys apart, to the point that I'm not sure if George won in 2 straight falls and video is out of order or if it's 2/3 falls with a missing finish. Still enjoyed it a lot regardless.
