MEMORIAL DAY WRESTLING IN CHARLOTTE

May 29, 1961
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

55 Years Ago

Tonight's PARK CENTER wrestling card has been completed with a main event match sending fan favorite GEORGE BECKER against rugged big SWEDE HANSON headlining the evening's action.

The BECKER-HANSON battle, which is set for one hour, two-out-of-three falls, will be preceded by a tag team tussle and three single matches.

The tag affair has CHIEF BIG HEART joining STEVE BOLUS to take on former gridironder MIKE PAIDOUSIS and rough CHRIS AVEROFF for the best-of-three falls, 45 minute time limit.

The list of three single scuffles is headed by a P. Y. CHUNG - BOB NANDOR match, plus SANDY SCOTT versus TERRY GARVIN and ABE JACOBS taking on TINKER TODD.

The first match is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. and advance tickets are on sale at the NATIONAL HAT SHOP in uptown Charlotte.
