Museum Part 4

This is the championship belt worn during the NWA World title reign of Lou Thesz in the 1940s and 50s

Below are 2 pictures of the death mask of 30s wrestler Maurice Tillet, who was known as "The French Angel" during his heyday. This mask is one of 3 in existance and was donated to the museum. I included a picture of Mikayla next to it to show the size of his head due to acromegaly, a disese that enlarges and disfigures the human body. It also lead to the death of Andre the Giant. Here is a picture of Maurice Tillet in everday life.
