I would think back in the carnival days they might allow guys to work another carnival in say the next town over, and that technically constitutes a "double shot" for the talent, at least.

Crockett Senior was at times running 2-3 shows a night in the late 60's, early 70's and I'd imagine guys worked double shots quite often on Saturdays and Sundays back then, in that loop.

So I'll take a wild guess and say Crockett Sr.

Possible as he went back to the '30s but as far as the carnys most of them also wrestled pro so I would imagine double shots were common.

So long from the Sunshine State!

In Britain in the 1930s in London, there were so many shows that it was common for wrestlers to work 2 or even 3 times a day.

I heard Milo Steinborn speak of making double shots so I would say the 1930's. Of course he could have meant a strong man feat and wrestling so that wouldn't count. I assumed he meant wrestling.

30's seems to be the consensus here.
