CHRISTMAS WRESTLING IN LEXINGTON

DECEMBER 16, 1967
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

49 Years Ago


Wrestling will observe a week's hiatus at the LEXINGTON YMCA at the completion of tonight's star-packed holiday card.

The traditional Christmas holiday break will be observed on Saturday, December 23, with action returning December 30.

Two tag team main events feature tonight's festive card. Both are set for the best-of-three falls.

THE FLYING SCOTTS, GEORGE and SANDY, will meet the rough and rowdy duo of THE MISSOURI MAULER and PAMPERO FIRPO. These two teams have battled each other here before, with nothing really being settled. Perhaps that will change in tonight's contest.

Ruffians TINY MILLS and STEVE STANLEE, fresh from a victory here last week, might find the going very tough this time when they meet prize grapplers ABE JACOBS and LUTHER LINDSAY, back together after ABE's recent return to the area.

Two single matches will open the holiday program, the first at 8:15.

ROGER KIRBY will meet THE MATADOR, and DENNIS HALL faces CHUCK CONLEY.

The youthful and popular KIRBY and HALL are cousins.
