The Double Cross Which Brought Down the Most Powerful Organization in Professional Wrestling
Between 1923 and 1928, the Gold Dust Trio of World Champion Ed "Strangler" Lewis, manager Billy Sandow and promotional genius Joseph "Toots" Mondt dominated professional wrestling. Due to the promotional practices of the Trio, Ed "Strangler" Lewis earned the most money of any professional athlete in the 1920s including Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey.
Riding a high tide of full houses and big gates, poor decisions based on greed led to trouble for both the Trio and professional wrestling.
