A CARD 53 YEARS AGO

June 16, 1962
LEXINGTON, N.C.


TONY BAILLARGEON


PEE WEE LOPEZ

P.Y. CHUNG

CHICO SANTANA

RAY VILLMER

Two tag team matches, including both heavyweights and midgets, are included on an all-star wrestling card tonight at the LEXINGTON YMCA.

French-Canadian stars TONY BAILLARGEON and MAURICE LAPOINTE will make their initial appearance here as a team when they meet the crafty Oriental villian duo of P.Y. CHUNG and TARO MYAKI in the heavyweight scrap.

The midget contest sends teams of FARMER MCGRUDER and PEE WEE LOPEZ against LITTLE BOY BLUE and CHICO SANTANA. This is SANTANA's Lexington debut.

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

RAY VILLMER meets BIG JIM WRIGHT * in a semi-finals match to open the card at 8:15.

BIG JIM WRIGHT would die in the ring the following year (1963).
