Grable and Wright Matched for Friday Wrestling Card

Spokane Daily Chronicle – July 30, 1945

The two men who lost to Maurice Tillet (the Angel) in recent bouts here will headline the Spokane Wrestling club’s show Friday, Promoter Hat Freeman said today.

The two are Lee Grable, good looking Hollywood grappler, and Jim Wright, giant cowboy from Houston.  The battle is a natural, for Grable is a gallery favorite and Wright definitely is the crowd’s “favorite” villain.

Wright’s performance against the Angel was better as the cowboy gained what was said to be the first fall the Angel has ever taken.  Grable put up a good show, but the Angel’s weight outclassed him.  The difference in weights will probably not bother Grable this time, Wright being 20 pounds lighter than Tillet.

A good supporting card with more of Spokane’s favorites is being planned.
