Q: Rudi Quarez

 

Wrestling Heritage A-Z



Rudi Quarez

It’s been a mystery for years.

All around the internet reference is made to the night in 1949 when George Kidd defeated Mexican Rudi Quarez to win the world lightweight title. Internet discussions on both sides of the Atlantic failed to establish what has become one of wrestling’s mysteries. Not heard of before that night. Not heard of since.

Just who was Rudi Quarez?

Heritage may just have the answer. One unconfirmed source, but it's a reliable one that should make us all stop and think; even if the revelation is breathtaking.
