LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA
49 Years Ago
There will be a NO DISQUALIFICATION tag team rematch between the prize Texas team of TEX McKENZIE and NELSON ROYAL and the unpredictable duo of the MASKED RED DEMONS tonight in LEXINGTON YMCA action.
TEX and NELLIE defeated their hooded opponents here last week but were not pleased, as the win came by a disqualification. The Texans claim they would have had one of the DEMONS unmasked if their opponents had not purposely got themselves disqualified in order to protect their identities.
THE MASKED RED DEMONS claim differently. They say they would have won the match outright had the official not been prejudiced against them.
All points to a scorcher in tonight's best-of-three falls return event.
Heroes JESSE JAMES and young BOBBY SHANE join forces for the first time to meet the tough brother team from Minnesota, LARS and GENE ANDERSON, in another two-out-of-three falls contest.
Single matches kick off the evening with newcomer JOHN HIGGINS facing veteran CORSICA JEAN.
KEN HOLLIS squares off against JAN MADRID in the 8:15 opening match.
