GERMAN TEAM DEMANDS REMATCH

December 10, 1966
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA



Two tag teams plus a battle between two pretty girl grapplers give interest to tonight's LEXINGTON YMCA mat card, kicking off at 8:15.

The popular duo of KLONDIKE BILL and ABE JACOBS are rematched tonight against KURT and HENRY VON STROHEIM. The German brothers made demands for this return match after a disputed loss to BILL and ABE here last Saturday.

PAUL DEMARCO and LUTHER LINDSEY, hero winners last week, return to face top competition in the likes of RIP HAWK and SWEDE HANSON, wrestling's "BLONDE BOMBERS."

Both tag team battles are set for the best two-out-of-three falls.

PENNY BANNER, the most popular girl wrestler around these parts, faces stiff competition when she faces TAMMY JONES, a not-so-nice lady, in a special one fall event.

TINKER TODD clashes with EL GAUCHO in the opening bout of the night. Don't look for many rules to be followed in this one.

LONG HAIR versus NO HAIR

November 21, 1964
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

Two of the biggest men in professional wrestling will collide with two of the roughest and most unpredictable men of the sport. The impact will be felt tonight at the LEXINGTON YMCA. Action begins at 8:15.

It will be THE KENTUCKIANS, TINY ANDERSON and BIG BOY BROWN, all 750 pounds of them, facing the skin-headed duo of BRUTE BERNARD and SKULL MURPHY in the two-out-of-three falls main event.

The big boys from the hills want to settle some old scores with the ruffians from Canada and Ireland. Encounters between the two teams in the past have been wild and wooly affairs.

While the tag team battle is the evening's bill of fare, there will be three singles matches as well.

BILL PARKS squares off against MARIO MILANO.

JESSE JAMES meets FRANK HICKEY.

The opener sends GEORGE GRANT against PAT O'BRIEN.

LEXINGTON LUMBERJACKS

September 10, 1966
LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

53 Years Ago

A LUMBERJACK MATCH has been scheduled to see if two top wrestling tag teams, TEX McKENZIE and NELSON ROYAL on one side, the MASKED RED DEMONS on the other, can settle their differences at the LEXINGTON YMCA tonight.

Six other wrestlers will spot themselves around the ring to prevent any runouts of any type taken by the RED DEMONS two weeks ago.

The Texas duo won that match on a count out. Tonight's main event is set for two-out-of-three falls within a one-hour time limit.

Huge Alaskan KLONDIKE BILL, with lumberjack experience, will join forces with fast-moving New Zealander ABE JACOBS to meet behemoths GEORGE 'TWO TON' HARRIS and BIG BOY BLONDELL in another best-of-three falls contest.

A special event will send girl wrestlers TONI ROSE and DIXIE JORDAN against one another in what should be a crowd-pleasing event.

Newcomer DON KENT, who debuted here last week, meets CORSICA JEAN in a singles bout, kicking off the card at 8:15.


KLONDIKE, JACOBS, HARRIS, BLONDELL, KENT and JEAN will serve as the six lumberjacks during the headliner.
