THE MISSOURI MAULER

HARU SASAKI

September 9, 1967
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

Rulebreakers PAMPERO FIRPO and THE MISSOURI MAULER, angry in being disqualified in their match here last week, will return to the LEXINGTON YMCA tonight for wrestling action and plan to take out their anger on fresh opponents GEORGE and SANDY SCOTT.

It may not be so easy for the bully team. THE FLYING SCOTTS, daring and spectacular and former WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, have vowed to tame the big and rowdy FIRPO / MAULER duo.

The tag team from the Orient, HARU SASAKI and P.Y. CHUNG, face the newcomer combo of handsome DENNIS HALL and ROGER KIRBY. Female fans have quickly taken to these two youngsters.

Both team matches will be wrestled under the stipulation of the best-of-three falls.

Returning after an absence of some time, GEORGE 'TWO TON' HARRIS will meet fellow rule breaker TONY ROMANO.

JERRY LONDON will clash with the mysterious masked man, THE MUMMY, in the evening's 8:15 opener.

MAULER CLAIMS WEAVER "A CHICKEN THIEF"

 July 16, 1966

LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA


THE MISSOURI MAULER


THE GREAT MALENKO



ABE JACOBS


LUTHER LINDSAY


PENNY BANNER


GEORGE 'CATALINA' DRAKE

Popular JOHNNY WEAVER, at least 'temporary' SOUTHERN HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, will take New Zealander ABE JACOBS as a partner tonight and will face THE MISSOURI MAULER and THE GREAT MALENKO in a two-out-of-three falls tag team main event at the LEXINGTON YMCA.

Last Saturday night in the ring, WEAVER had one fall in a championship bout against the title-holding MAULER when all types of excitement broke out. Referee Walter Buckner was injured and could not continue officiating. WEAVER, trying to aid the fallen ref, was attacked by the MAULER, and JACOBS came in to lend a hand. The MAULER took the low road and ran, with WEAVER grabbing the championship belt, saying he plans to keep it until the NWA officials make a ruling. Tonight's grudge match grows out of the turmoil.

"He never beat me for the belt, but he stole it anyway," claims the MAULER. "He's just as low down as the chicken thieves we've got back home in St. Jo. As far as I'm concerned, WEAVER is nothing but a chicken thief, and he's gonna pay."

Another tag match is scheduled with two falls necessary to determine a winner. Popular power hitters GEORGE 'CATALINA' DRAKE and Negro star LUTHER LINDSAY will meet CORSICA JEAN and Lexington newcomer 'BRUISER' BOB MORGAN.

MISS PENNY BANNER and MISS DIXIE JORDAN face off in a special ladies match, and IKE EAKINS battles KEN HOLLIS in the opening match, which gets underway at 8:15.
