Joseph Acton (8 March, 1852 – 26 June, 1917) Known by his ring name “Little Joe” or “Limey Joe”, Joe Acton was a British professional wrestler and world champion who competed in England and America during the late 19th century.

After repeated challenges to Acton for another match without eliciting a response, he next encountered Evan Lewis, “The Strangler,” at Pittsburg, June 18, 1887, for $1,000 and the championship, and after a desperate struggle victory again perched on the banner of the “Lancashire Lad.” He thus became champion of the world, a title he held till defeated by Jack Carkeek in 1890.

By then, “catch”, as opposed to the previously popular disciplines of collar-and-elbow and Greco-Roman, had ascended to primacy in the minds of American pro wrestling enthusiasts.

This happened, largely, in the wake of two Chicago confrontations between Lewis and a popular Japanese invader, Matsada Sorakichi.

Edwin Bibby (15 November, 1848–1905) Edwin Bibby was an English wrestling champion during the 1870s and 1880s.

He was a popular Catch-as-Catch-Can style wrestler in his generation.
