194. Orville Brown
The man with the claim to fame of being the first recognized National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion, Orville Brown mad his name in the state of Kansas accumulating regional championships.  Brown was pegged by the growing National Wrestling Alliance to be their first champion and embarked on unification matches with other regional promotions.  A severe car accident derailed that plan, but he would promote the Midwest Wrestling Association in the 50’s before selling it to Bob Geigel.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: U.S.A. (Sharon, Kansas)
  • Key Championships Held: MWA (Kansas) World Heavyweight (11)
    MWA (Ohio) World Heavyweight
    NWA World Heavyweight
  • Why they will get in: Historically speaking, Brown is the first NWA Champion. That should mean something.
  • Why they won't get in: He did not succeed in unifying all of the world titles, although that championship would eventually do so.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments: 1.   Won his first of eleven MCA World Heavyweight Championship, defeating Bobby Bruns  (6/13/40)
    2.   Defeated Lee Wyckoff for the MCA Title (10/16/41)
    5.   Beat Tug Carlson for the MCA Title (12/26/47)
    4.   Awarded the first National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Championship (1/5/48)
    5.   Beat Frank Sexton to unify the NWA Title with the American Wrestling Alliance Title (3/15/49)
