Gorgeous George Beaten By John “Gorky” Smith

Saskatoon Star-Phoenix – February 17, 1961

Gorgeous George had his platinum curls ruffled as well as his dignity Thursday night as John “Gorky” Smith put an end to the main event of the wrestling card at the Arena after only 11 minutes of action.

George, with his wife acting as his valet, entertained the 566 cash customers with his usual pre-fight perfuming of the ring and tossing gold plated hair clips to the ringside patrons, but missed an intended drop kick and Smith pinned him before he could recover.

Earlier Gentleman Ed Francis and Gino Marella were disqualified along with their tag team opponents Mighty Ursus and Dave Ruhl.

Rubberman Johnny Walker won by disqualification from Larry Henning and Torri Torres defeated the Mongol.

Next week Francis and Torri Torres wrestle the main event for Franicis’ version of the Canadian open heavyweight championship.
