San Pedro News-Pilot – December 14, 1933
BOSTON, Dec. 14. (AP) —It seems there were two wrestlers and a referee.
One of the wrestlers, Al Mercier of Springfield, Mass., tossed the other wrestler, Charley Strack of Oklahoma, for what looked like the deciding fall of their match.
But Referee Al Pierotti got in the way of Strack’s left foot and hit the canvas, to all appearances cold.

Pins Austeri In Main Bout At Kanter’s
Jimmy Austeri, Clifton grappler, returned to local mat warfare last night at Kanter’s Auditorium but his 1945 debut was an inauspicious one as he dropped the feature wrestling bout to Reb Russell.
Russell, Texas grappler, used numerous illegal tactics in his match with Austeri. The bout was rough throughout with Russell being booed by the fans for his unfair tactics.

Monkey Flips With Rolls Defeat Wallick, Who Acts Like Cad; Dusek Brothers Win At The Armory
The Dusek brothers, Rudy and Wally, won wrestling bouts at the Teaneck Armory last night but the cheers were for a home town lad, Teaneck’s Murray Rothenberg, who pinned New York’s Fritzie Wallick in 10 minutes and 29 seconds of a 30-minute bout.
Thousands, well hundreds yowled as Murray climaxed his performance and Wallick with a series of monkey flips followed by a roll. Cricket-like, the Bergen County wrestler leaped upon his stricken adversary and was rewarded by being tapped on the back by the referee.

Washington Post – December 9, 1933
It was somewhat of an off night at Mons. Joe Turner’s rassling circus at the Auditorium last night, the card not being particularly good and the cash customers seeming to sense the fact and so staying away in larger numbers. Only about 2,500 showed up. Continue reading

“Oh No, Mr. Referee, You Can’t Tell Me What to Do,” Says Mr. Dusek
Shortly before his title match with champion, Danno O’Mahoney, was stopped when a flock of policemen jumped into the ring, Challenger Ernie Dusek got plenty rough, or so referee Dickerhoff though. Dusek was duly warned of this but Mr. Dusek didn’t care to be warned about it, and so told Mr. Dickerhoff while applying a toe hold on the disinterested O’Mahoney. The above shows the argument in full bloom, with no sound effect. The wrestlers’ purses were held up by the boxing commission.
Jump Into Ring After O’Mahoney and Dusek Refuse To Halt When Bout Is Called Draw By Referee.
While Charley Chaplin gave up cop-chases as a part of his comedy act back as far as the old Keystone Comedy days, the gentlemen who control wrestling in the country felt all along, apparently, that Pittsburgh had never seen enough of the time-honored situation so last night a squad of Pittsburgh’s finest were inducted into the action in the sketch between Danno O’Mahoney, dubbed the wrestling champion of the world, and Ernie Dusek, a Midwesterner, in the North Side Arena.
