In the past pro wrestling was real wrestling, not clown wrestling
we see on TV.
There were two outstanding deaf pro wrestlers – William Suttka
who wrestled under the name of Silent Olson. He wrestled professionally
between 1918 and 1933.
The second one was Everett Rattan, who was so inspired by Silent Olson,
that he decided to become a pro wrestler, wrestling under the name of
Silent Rattan. He wrestled between 1923 and 1947.
