World Champion Jim Londos on cover of Arena Magazine - 1931

This issue of Arena magazine from 1931 features World Champion Jim Londos on the cover. Londos to this day ranks as one of the five greatest box office attractions in wrestling history for his incredible run in the Depression-era 1930's, drawing crowds of over 30,000 to baseball stadiums and outdoor venues across the country. His gate records have been broken in modern dollars, but it's quite possible more fans saw him wrestle live as champion than anyone else in the annals of wrestling, including Steve Austin and the Rock.
