The Mighty HAYSTACKS CALHOUN and speedy ABE JACOBS join forces as a tag team tonight and will face the rowdy skinhead duo of BRUTE BERNARD and SKULL MURPHY in the evening's main event wrestling bout at the LEXINGTON YMCA.

CALHOUN, the "world's biggest wrestler" and JACOBS, known for his "kee-wee roll" should give their rule-breaking opponents plenty of competition in the best two-out-of-three falls contest.

Another big operator, GEORGE 'TWO TON' HARRIS meets the very popular GEORGE 'CATALINA' DRAKE' in the co-main event, scheduled for the best-of-three falls.

Three top preliminaries are also on tap with big stars involved.

RON REED will face off against rowdy MIKE GALLAGHER.

RAY DURAN will meet young OMAR ATLAS.

Two veterans will compete when GORY GUERRERO challenges TINKER TODD.
