This week we look back at one of the toughest women in the square circle but outside of Professional Wrestling as well.
While most young women of her time were challenging life and work, Ada was lifting horses, wrestling crocodiles, and yes, Wrestling bears!
Ada Ash was not afraid to get into the ring with opponents larger than her and she proved it in over 171 matches.
Of course I had my favorite matches and that was with Shirley Strimple, "The Wrestling Housewife!
She's had her head busted open, and reportedly, in a match against Nell Stewart she inadvertently fell out of the ring onto the floor injuring her spine!
Ada was trained by a few ring veterans, one being her husband Al Szasz who was well known in the San Francisco area during the 30's.
So many of todays Divas who grace the TV screen should be first to remember Stars like Ada Ash who were true Professional Wrestling Stars of the early days.
At CPW we remember greats like Ada Ash!
