1957 was an important year for Thesz; on June 14 the first taint to Thesz' claim of undisputed Champion occurred in a match with gymnast-turned-wrestling star Edouard Carpentier. 2The World Heavyweight Championship of the National Wrestling Association is not the same championship nor does it have any connection to the world championship recognized and used by the National Wrestling Alliance. He became a trainer for the Union of Wrestling Force International and lent the promotion one of his old NWA Title belts which they recognized as their own World Title.
Among his many accomplishments he is credited with inventing a number of professional wrestling techniques such as the belly to back waistlock suplex (later known as the German suplex due to its association with Karl Gotch) the Lou Thesz press STF and the original powerbomb. Aloysius Martin "Lou" Thesz (Born Lajos Tiza April 24 1916 - April 28 2002) was an American professional wrestler and six-timeworld champion most notably holding the NWA World Heavyweight Championship three times.
