Acclaimed Sports Promoter. His real name was Jacques Armand Schuel and he was one of the great sport promoter's of all-time. Curley was the master of publicity and a major contributor to the pages of Ring Magazine. Curley was so famous, that the magazine published his memoirs over 24 issues. During a legendary career that spanned four decades, he managed boxers, opera stars (Caruso), tennis player (Tilden), swimmers, actors, circuses, and even Vatican Choir, but it was pro-wrestling's history that can't be written without his name. In 1910 he promoted the Match of the Century, Gotch vs Hackenschmidt which drew the largest gate in history. (bio by: Gregory Spesh)
