[1931-03-04-Los Angeles, CA] Ed Don George vs Everett Marshall

Nice seeing some footage of Marshall, as I was on of the guys who had no idea who he was when he went into the WON HOF. Compared to the Wagner match just a few months before this, Marshall's presence seems to result that much more closely resembles the modern style. Seems like there's more of an emphasis on theatrical working of individual holds instead of the more back-and-forth grappling seen in the Wagner match. Marshall takes much of the first half of the match, throwing George around at will but it looks like he tires himself out towards the end and that leaves George an opening for a comeback. Nice stretch run for a hot crowd with both guys just charging into each other like two bulls.
