Joe Savoldi enters Wrestling (2/6/1931)

Some footage of a sparring and promo from the beginning of the wrestling career of former football star Joe Savoldi. It's a short clip but I thought it was interesting how he mentioned he chose wrestling over boxing because he didn't want to end up punch drunk. I've seen it implied the long-term effects of concussions weren't thought much about until the last decade, but this footage shows there was some fear this far back even if the science wasn't quite there yet.
