Wrestlers Stage Underwater Battles (Jul, 1939)

Wrestlers Stage Underwater Battles

Submarine matmen are staging underwater wrestling matches in a swimming pool, as a novel attraction for vacationing visitors at an Atlantic seaside resort. Viewed through glass windows in the walls of the swimming tank, the wrestlers seem to be staging a slow-motion bout as they make and break holds beneath the surface of the water.

    I don’t know… but that strikes me as a rather bad idea 😀

    Sammy the Sharks underwater sleeper hold should not be missed!

    Later they added a few rules and rechristened it “water polo.”

    Is there perhaps a typo in the headline? Should it be “Wrestlers stage underwater ballets”?
