TAG TITLES ON THE LINE

 July 13, 1963

LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

58 Years Ago



Wrestling fans who like tag team action will get a double dose in an all-star card tonight at the LEXINGTON YMCA.

The current SOUTHERN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, RAY ANDREWS and ERIC POMEROY, will defend their honor and belts against the savage challengers, ALDO BOGNI and BRONCHO LUBICH, who are managed by their strutting, cane-carrying manager HOMER O'DELL.

Popular stars REGGIE PARKS and JOHNNY WEAVER return after an absence to face the mammoth duo of "big and round guys" GEORGE 'CRYBABY' CANNON and GEORGE 'TWO TON' HARRIS in the co-main event.

Both tag team matches are set for the best-two-out-of-three falls.

Action will get underway at 8:15 when two more big men, FRANK VALOIS and PAT O'BRIEN, meet in the opener.

BLOOD(Y) BROTHERS GO AT IT

 July 29, 1967

LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

A battle between two brother teams highlights professional wrestling tonight at the LEXINGTON YMCA.

It will be THE FLYING SCOTTS, GEORGE and SANDY, against LARS and GENE ANDERSON, and bad blood exists between the two units. There were brief flurries here last Saturday night when the SCOTT brothers took up for CHIEF LITTLE EAGLE and JERRY LONDON after the ANDERSONs had defeated them. LARS and GENE decided winning the match wasn't enough, so the skullduggery continued until GEORGE and SANDY stepped in to control the violence. Tonight, the ANDERSON / SCOTT collision should get hot and heavy.

The widely-known South American wildman, PAMPERO FIRPO, makes his LEXINGTON debut tonight when he joins forces with THE MISSOURI MAULER to meet big KLONDIKE BILL and partner GREG PETERSON in another tag encounter.

Two-out-of-three falls govern both tag team matches.

Singles matches tonight will see popular Texan NELSON ROYAL meet the mysterious masked man, THE MUMMY, while TONY ROMANO and PEDRO GODOY, both rugged veterans, meet in a bullies opening match at 8:15.
