GREAT PARK CENTER TIMES


It's difficult and somewhat sad to realize that this JIM CROCKETT PROMOTIONS
wrestling card at CHARLOTTE'S PARK CENTER occurred over fifty-five years ago...

THE AMAZING ZUMA

THE GREAT BOLO

HAYSTACK CALHOUN

'IRISH' MIKE CLANCY

LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON


May 3, 1960
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

Two of the hottest wrestling personalities to hit the Charlotte grappling scene in many years will collide tonight at the PARK CENTER to settle who is better.

It's THE AMAZING ZUMA, the acrobatic South American, going against the hooded menace, THE GREAT BOLO. They'll get one hour, two of three falls, to decide the winner.

The semiwindup has JACKIE FARGO and DON STEVENS tackling rugged RAY VILLMER and 'IRISH' MIKE CLANCY in tag team warfare.

The main prelim has 600-pounder HAYSTACK CALHOUN going against the nasty German KARL VON HESS and the 8:15 opener sends BOB BOYER against LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON **


** LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON later wrestled as THE MISSOURI MAULER.
