Another classic photo featuring Whipper Watson getting out of the way of a charging Hans Schmidt.
Most likely 1955 or perhaps '56 while Whipper was NWA champ, Schmidt had a good run in the area from 1953-1975.

In addition to challenging Watson he also faced Pat O'Connor at MLG in 1959
and though a hated heel he was apparently a very nice guy outside the ring.
