From the Time Line Project:

Feb. 15, 1934-- St Louis Arena, MO: AWA World Champion Ed Don George defeated Gino Garibaldi in 44:31. Also Ed “Strangler” Lewis drew with Joe Malcewicz, Abe Coleman defeated Joe Cox, and Dick Raines drew Karl Davis. Attendance was 5,373. Promoter was Tom Packs. The St. Louis Daily Globe-Democrat reported: “Lewis has been an outstanding box office magnet for 20 years because he is a “villain” of the mat and the fans turn out in the hope of seeing him beaten. Throughout his career the “Strangler” has capitalized unpopularity. He is so hated by fans that no one wants to be absent when he loses. Malcewicz is a drawing card because he adheres to the rules of wrestling and has endeared himself to patrons of the game that they go to see him win.”
