58 YEARS AGO IN CHARLOTTE

August 11, 1959
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

MR. MOTO


DUKE KEOMUKA


GEORGE BECKER


BILLY TWO RIVERS


THE GREAT BOLO

PAT O'HARA


LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON


DANNO O'SHOCKER

REGGIE PARKS

CYCLONE ANAYA

MR. MOTO and DUKE KEOMUKA will face another top challenge for their SOUTHERN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP in the headline bout of tonight's pro wrestling card at the PARK CENTER here in CHARLOTTE.

The Japs, who have protected their crown against all comers for the past month, will defend their belts against the clever and immensely popular tandem of GEORGE BECKER and BILLY TWO RIVERS. The championship match is set for two-out-of-three falls with a one-hour time limit.

The semi-final tonight squares off fan favorite PAT O'HARA against the dreaded masked man, THE GREAT BOLO. Perhaps tonight will be the lucky night for the Irishman in his quest to unmask the hooded ruffian. It's also two-of-three falls.

The top prelim will send the rugged LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON against young DANNO O'SHOCKER, and the 8:15 opener, set for one fall, twenty minute limit, has the handsome Canadian scrapper from Ontario, REGGIE PARKS, against the very tough CYCLONE ANAYA.
