Casey Berger

Casey Berger was a national star in the 1920s, though you seldom hear his name mentioned today. He had a lengthy Arizona run and many matches at the then relatively new Phoenix Madison Square Garden.

In 1929, Berger has a rivalry going with one Jack Carter, with whom he had a number of matches and traded victories.

He also had what might be deemed a feud with Pete Sauer.

Berger also had matches in different parts of the territory with Buzz Bartley, Charlie Stark and Ira Dern.

Berger used a short arm scissors to force opponents down for the pin or for submission.  He was a sound technical wrestler, but had a limited number of moves to his credit. Those he executed, he did well.
