Slave Girl Moolah beat Betty Boucher
P.Y. Chung beat Bill Parks
Angelo Martinelli beat Yashino Sato by DQ
Jim Crockett, George Becker and Billy Two-Rivers presented a check the the Goodfellows

A very interesting aspect of this main event is the paper reported that the Bolos lost one fall by pin and one fall by submission. During their run for JCP, the Bolos pledged to unmask if they lost a two out of three fall match by pinfall or submission. If this result is correct, then my question is, why did they not unmask?

This photo comes from one of my Jim Crockett programs that was produced in the 1960's. Pancho Valdez and The Matador worked on the undercard and tv matches for Mr. Crockett. Ads for Wrestling Revue magazine were featured in many of those programs. I plan on featuring more photos here in the future, particularly the folks who worked the undercard. They deserve to be remembered the same as the main eventers. They helped build many careers.
