Relive the Golden Age of St. Louis Wrestling with the ‘Wrestling at the Chase’ Book [PHOTOS]


St. Louis author Ed Wheatley is also a sports historian and a film producer, which makes him uniquely qualified to assemble the definitive book on the history of wrestling in St. Louis.

Wheatley’s upcoming release, Wrestling at the Chase, chronicles the people and places of the local wrestling scene. Vintage photographs, flyers and more illustrate the magic and excitement of the time.

Released by favorite local publishing house Reedy Press, the book is a well-organized collage of essays, interviews and memorabilia that will entertain anyone with an interest in St. Louis history or wrestling history.

To learn the secret stories and interesting details behind the photos in this collection, you'll have to dig into Wheatley's book.
