Zbyszko’s Skull Broken

The New York Times – May 26, 1913

Polish Wrestler Hurt in Bout with Constant Lemarin.

MONTREAL, May 25. – Stanislaus Zbyszko, the Polish wrestler, is suffering from a fractured skull and other injuries as a result of a plunge from the ring to the floor and alleged fouling tactics used by his opponent, Constant Lemarin, in a match here last night.  While his condition is serious, it is not believed that his injuries will prove fatal.  The big Pole, however, will be idle for some time.

Zbyszko rose to his feet, but tottered and fell unconscious in the ring.  He was taken to a hotel and an examination by the doctors disclosed a fractured skull.

  1. Was Stanislaus Larry’s grandfather? RL

      Nope. Stanislaus and Wladek Zbyszko were legitimate brothers that wrestled from the early 1900s to the 1920s. Larry basically just donned the name as a tribute and presumably because it sounds cool.
