CHARLOTTE'S PARK CENTER - 57 YEARS AGO

AUGUST 26, 1958

RED BASTIEN

THE GREAT BOLO

August 26, 1958
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
---
A 'fight to the finish' will highlight tonight's wrestling card at Charlotte's PARK CENTER.
---
The NO TIME LIMIT two-out-of-three falls match will give popular RED BASTIEN another shot against THE GREAT BOLO, and if BASTIEN can take two falls from the masked hoodlum, off will come BOLO's prized mask.
---
Last week, the two battled to a one-hour draw without a single fall recorded by either participant.
---
"There must be a winner this time," says promoter JIM CROCKETT. "I don't care if they wrestle two hours. Someone is going to win."

GEORGE BECKER

CYCLONE ANAYA

FRITZ VON ERICH

WALDO VON ERICH

ERNIE DUSEK

MIKE PAIDOUSIS

The semi-final best-of-three falls scrap is a tag team scuffle that pairs GEORGE BECKER with CYCLONE ANAYA to do battle with the rugged German brothers FRITZ and WALDO VON ERICH.
---
The Germans were disqualified last week in a match with BILLY TWO RIVERS and his partner, but showed that they are one of the toughest duos in the wrestling business today.
---
Two single bouts make up the undercard.
---
One match has ERNIE DUSEK taking on NICK ROBERTS, while MIKE PAIDOUSIS faces TINKER TODD in the 8:15 opening match.
