MAN VERSUS BEAR

July 8, 1961
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA
54 Years Ago


TERRIBLE TED


THE VON BRAUNERS with GENTLEMAN SAUL WEINGROFF


KURT AND KARL VON BRAUNER

A wrestling bear comes to the LEXINGTON YMCA this week to provide addition excitement to an all-star pro wrestling card.

TERRIBLE TED, 500 pounds and standing seven feet tell, will be matched against a tough wrestler in the likes of FIRPO ZYBSKO in a special attraction.

The German team of KURT and KARL VON BRAUNER, who missed their LEXINGTON debut last week because of injuries, are matched against LEE GARCIA and ANGELO MARTINELLI, impressive last week in a victory over substitutes for the Germans, in this week's co-feature.

The SOUTHERN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP, recently won by the VON BRAUNERs, will be on the line in a best-of-three-falls contest.

The German duo, who are managed by GENTLEMAN SAUL WEINGROFF, are also the WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS.

COWBOY BILL COLE will face BILLY COX, and GENE DUBOIS squares off against HERB LARSEN in the week's preliminary matches.

Action gets underway at 8:15.
