CHARLOTTE - 55 YEARS AGO

October 9, 1961
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

SWEDE HANSON

KURT and KARL VON BRAUNER

RIP HAWK

EDDIE GRAHAM
---
The rugged German team of brothers KURT and KARL VON BRAUNER has become the scourge of tag team wrestling in the Carolinas, and they're reveling in the notoriety.

And the team that would like most to unseat the vicious Germans as tag team 'kingpins', SWEDE HANSON and DR. EDDIE GRAHAM, gets another chance in the headliner of tonight's PARK CENTER wrestling card.

HANSON and GRAHAM have lost two furious bloody bouts to the VON BRAUNERs recently and are greedy for revenge. They'll get one hour and two-of-three falls to pull off the whipping they're predicting they will dish out to the Germans.

The card's semi-final event has TOM BRADLEY going against fan favorite GEORGE BECKER, and the main prelim sends DON McCLARITY against RIP 'THE PROFILE' HAWK.

Action kicks off at 8:15.
