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.

The Bullet Points

  • Other Aliases: Wladyslaw Cyganlewicz (Real Name)
  • Billed From: Krakow, Poland
  • Key Championships Held:

    American Heavyweight

    AWA World Heavyweight (Boston)
  • Why they will get in: Perhaps he can get with his brother.
  • Why they won't get in: Same reason. He could easily be forgotten. If his brother does and he doesn’t, it won’t happen at a later time.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments:
    1. Defeated Ed “Strangler” Lewis for the Boston version (later disputed) of the AWA Heavyweight Title 1/8/17
    2. Beat Lewis again 12/22/17
    3. Loses his claimed Heavyweight Title to Earl Caddock 2/8/18
    4. Wrestled Helio Gracie to a draw in Brazil 7/28/34
    5. Went up against Helio’s brother George 10/6/34

Should Wladek Zbyszko be in the Hall of Fame?
