Lou Thesz Designated World Wrestling King

United Press International – August 29, 1964

ST. LOUIS – The men who promoted the sport of grunts and groans convened Saturday and designated Lou Thesz as the world’s heavyweight wrestling champion.

It was pointed out that Thesz won back the title for the sixth time in Toronto in 1963.

About 20 leading wrestling promoters from North America attended the meeting of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), and delegates were expected to re-elect Sam Muchnick of St. Louis to his 12th year as president of the 16-year-old organization.
