Saskatoon Star-Phoenix – February 14, 1961
Gorgeous George, one of the big names in the wrestling world, comes back to the Saskatoon Arena ring on Thursday night for a match against John Smith.
It will be the headliner of the card. Mat fans are asked to note the change in date for this week only.
George, who is decked out in fancy costumes and platinum blonde curls, created quite a sensation in wrestling with his appearance. He is accompanied by his wife, who acts as his valet.
Two new faces will be introduced.
One of them will be The Mongol, a new arrival from Manchuria who will trade holds with Rubberman Johnny Walker. The other newcomer is Larry Henning, a former University of Minnesota footballer, who will run up against Torri Torres.
Rounding out the card will be an Australian tag team match. Gentleman Ed Francis and Gino Marella will tangle against Dave Ruhl and Mighty Ursus.
