Frank Sexton (1914 – February 1990) was an American professional wrestler in the early to mid-twentieth century. Along with Orville Brown, Bill Longson, and Lou Thesz, he was one of the biggest stars of the 1940s. A multiple-time world champion, his most significant run was as the Boston American Wrestling Association (AWA) World Heavyweight Champion from June 1945 until March 15, 1949, when he lost to the first NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Orville Brown, in a title unification match. Sexton died in 1990.
