Pietro, One of the Roughest Men Seen In Game at Montreal, Continual ly Complained to Referee Bout Ends In Row. French Canadians are fond of sport and for many years have shown a keen interest in wrestling. When Gotch flashed upon the scene as a wrestler of world fame the Canadians were organizing a mat tournament Grapplers from every country of Eu rope entered this tourney. Gotch en tered also and taught -the Canadians that he was the superior in the sci ence of wrestling of the horde of for eign grapplers Invading American shores for fame and money. Gotch's last match In this tourna ment was with a giant named Pietro. It technically gave the championship to Gotch, but proved to be one of the strangest encounters of the world champion's career. It was the boast of Pietro that he had not lost a match for many years at Greco-Roman wrest ling. This record was easily explain ed after Gotch's match with the fiery Bayonese grappler. If protesting could keep him from being thrown then Pie tro should have gone a life time with out being pinned, for he was debating and complaining to the referee every few minutes. Pietro was known as one of the roughest wrestlers ever seen in Mon treal. He had shown no mercy to his weaker opponents. He had given an opponent a terrible mauling a week before Gotch appeared to measure strength with hiin. When the referee called time, Pietro rushed Gotch into the ropes and tried for a leg grip, but Gotch blocked him. Gotch then rushed his opponent to the ropes, secured a leg hold and tried to drag him back, but Pietro grabbed tho ropes and refused to budge. The referee finally ordered Gotch to re linquish his hold. Gotch retaliated with rough work. Pietro stopped wrestling to tell the referee that Gotch bud pulled his mus tache. The referee had difficulty con vincing him that he was supposed to be in a wrestling match, not a col lego debate. u Although Pietro had started the rough work he complained repeatedly that Gotch was hurting him. He turned his upper lip back to, show the referee where Gotch had Bhoved his elbow against his mouth. Pietro evl- ' A Vi '- f '.Xl a! jy Crotch, Toelock and Push Down. dently wished to monopolize the rough work. He made frequent passes at Gotch, giving him his fist in the clinch es. There was no fall In the first ten minute bout Pietro redoubled his protests In the second bout . He would leave tbe mat and be forced back by his friends. He would wrestle a few minutes and quit When he would quit he would double up his fist and threaten to give Gotch a blow In the ribs. Finally Gotch came to the conclu sion that he should delegate himself a committee to aid the referee in preserving order and keeping thing moving. When Pietro began to pro test in the third bout, Gotch yulled him away and made him wrest'l. Pie tro then quit and started to walk away. Gotch caught him, pulle-1 him back, and rushed him Into the rope. The cords snapped and the Greco-Roman star fell to the floor on his back This tinte he did not protest, but came back and began roughing It madly, hit ting Gotch In tbe clinches. Breaking away he swung heavily on Gotch's jaw. Instead of going down for the count Gotch came back at his man to punish him. Sub-Chief Lamouche stepped in and ordered the battle stopped.- He tried to explain why he had stopped the match, but was yelled down. The po lice ordered Gotch out of the ring" Gotch stepped to the footlights to ad dress the crowd, but the police stopped blm.
