She Ain’t Doin’ Right By Little Nell

Brooklyn Daily Eagle – November 26, 1949

Lady wrestler Helen Hild throws Nell Stewart

When ladies meet on the wrestling mat, they usually demonstrate what the fellow meant when he said that “the female of the species is more deadly than the male.”  Above is a sample of how the hand that rocks the cradle may also be used to rock a sister into slumberland.  The gal in white is Helen Hild and her opponent, who has just been given the heave-ho, is Nell Stewart.  Lady wrestlers draw a bigger gate than the males – maybe because they groan soprano.

  1. Love this report. Helen was Ted DeBiase’s mom right? Also, Brooklyn Daily Eagle would make a great name for a punk band.

      Helen was indeed Ted DiBiase’s mom. DiBiase is one of the few wrestlers who had both parents as professional wrestlers.
