311. Gus Sonnenberg
One of the few professional wrestlers to defeat Ed “Strangler” Lewis, Gus Sonnenberg was also a former NFL Champion and a fixture in the American Northeast wrestling scene.  Sonnenberg was a major fixture in the New England area, which can’t hurt him in regards to what is essentially a Hall of Fame based in Connecticut.
