There is some microfilm for the 1930's up to 1932 where it
cuts off as it was damaged in a fire years back.

No local Wrestling mentioned in the reels I have been through so far except for this
card, billed as a Mit-Mat show, a combination of Boxing & Wrestling. Jack Taylor was a star in Toronto
at the time and Phil Lawson was the man who got Whipper Watson involved in the mat game and
later became Whipper's manager.

The Oshawa paper would run the results from the Toronto cards as well as results from other Canadian cities
There was also wrestling held at the Oshawa Armories in the late 30's but until more microfilm surfaces it's unknown
as to how many cards were run in those years.
