372. Wladek Zbyszko

The brother of Stanislaus Zbyszko, Wladek had a good career in his own right where he wrestled and defeated Ed “Strangler” Lewis for the Boston version of the AWA Heavyweight Title.  That win was disputed, but it made him, and he would go on to face Lewis multiple times and became a headliner across the world, literally as he competed against the Gracies (yes, them) in Brazil later in his career.  That alone makes him a pioneer of some sort as it is still unclear whether those matches were worked, was a shoot or something in between.
