Is Forced To Swear It Was A Fake: Wrestler Luttberg Tells a Strange Story About the Woodmansee Match

Published in The Chicago Daily Tribune, July 29, 1895, Page 4.

St. Louis. MO., July 29 – [Special.] Max Luttberg recently had a wrestling match with Woodmansee in Cincinnati. Luttberg now says one Isaacs, in a room at the Rosier Hotel, this morning at the point of a revolver forced him against his will and inclination to sign a paper acknowledging the Woodmansee match was a prearranged fake and fixed for Woodmansee to win. Luttberg says Isaacs wants to use this paper as an instrument to recover money he lost on the match. He threatens to sue Isaacs for damages for slander and also swear out a warrant for his arrest on a charge of forgery.
