HOMER O'DELL'S NEW TEAM


April 13, 1963
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

54 Years Ago

The immensely popular tag team of GEORGE BECKER and BILLY TWO RIVERS returns to the LEXINGTON YMCA tonight to battle the rugged villainous duo of ALDO BOGNI and BRONCHO LUBICH in the two-out-of-three falls main event that headlines this week's wrestling card.

BECKER and TWO RIVERS are well-known as a team. The LUBICH and BOGNI combo is a fairly new combination but has been very successful since teaming up. Perhaps part of that success is due to manager HOMER O'DELL, who is always in the corner of the bullies.

GEORGE and BILLY will have to keep their eyes on O'DELL, as well as BOGNI and LUBICH, as the tuxedoed manager tends to become involved in his men's matches. And that wooden cane he carries has found its mark on opponents' noggins.

Asheboro's own rising wrestling star, LARRY HULIN, faces a tough test when he meets big SWEDE HANSON in the week's best-of-three fall semifinal encounter.

In the night's prelim matches, JOHNNY 'RUBBERMAN' WALKER meets rough JAN MADRID, and DOUG KINSLOW squares off against MARK STONE in the 8:15 opener.

JOHNNY 'RUBBERMAN' WALKER later wrestled under the hood as MR. WRESTLING 2.
