Eighteen wrestlers make up one of the biggest wrestling cards in the history of Charlotte grappling tonight in the LABOR DAY mat card at the CHARLOTTE COLISEUM. It promises to be a memorable evening.
The huge holiday card consists of three tag matches, one of which matches six wrestlers, and two single scraps.
Headlining the card is the SIX MAN setto, with the Jap trio of MR. MOTO, DUKE KEOMUKA and SUIGI taking on ruffians LARRY 'CRUSHER' HAMILTON, THE GREAT BOLO and PAT O'HARA. None of these men respects the rule book, so the best-of-three falls encounter is bound to be an explosive skirmish.
The semi-final beings in four colored girls for tag action. One team has BABS WINGO and MARVA SCOTT with the opposition being furnished by CAT WINBLEY and ETHEL JOHNSON.
Then comes a pair of singles tussels, one sending crowd favorite GEORGE BECKER against STEVE BOLUS and the other pairing DICK STEINBORN against DANNY MERCE.
The third tag battle will open the card at 8:15 and pairs JOHNNY HEIDEMAN and JACK DONOVAN to fight CYCLONE ANAYA and JOHN FOTI.
A resumption of the big feud between CHIEF BIG HEART and RIP HAWK headlines a four-bought wrestling program tonight at PARK CENTER.
The Indian chief and "The Profile" met last week in a strange bout that never even got started, officially, that is.
The two began fighting just as soon as both reached the ring, and the referee never rang the bell. Not being able to get the participants into the ring for their instructions, the official had no choice but to call it a NO CONTEST, even though HEART and HAWK beat each other to bloody pulps on the arena floor.
Falls count anywhere in the building for tonight's battle, so fighting outside the ring will be permitted. The man first to win two falls will be the winner.
The evening's tag team affair will send the popular duo of HENRY PHILLIPS and BILLY PARKS squaring off against the rugged masked combo of THE MEDICS. This one is set for the best-of-three falls within a 45-minute time limit.
DON McCLARITY heads up the prelim bouts in a scuffle with GYPSY JOE, and the 8:15 opener finds LENNY MONTANA facing TINKER TODD.
