Lopez, Anaya Beat Sharpes

San Jose Mercury News – November 24, 1955

Vincent Lopez and Cyclone Anaya took turns registering falls as they defeated Mike and Ben Sharpe in a one-hour tag match in the main event of last night’s wrestling card at the Civic Auditorium.

Lopez won the first fall as he pinned Ben Sharpe with elbow smashes and a body press in 13 minutes, 24 seconds.

Ben won the second fall with a body press after Lopez injured his knee when he was knocked out of the ring by Sharpe. Time for the fall was 7 minutes, 52 seconds. Anaya captured the deciding fall as he threw Ben with a body press in 4 minutes, 58 seconds.

Bud Curtis and Steve Stanlee went to a draw in the semi-wind-up, each gaining a fall. Curtis scored first with a body press in 25 minutes and 6 seconds, but Stanlee took the second fall in 12 minutes and 32 seconds. The 45-minute time limit expired before either could gain another fall.

Rocky Brown was awarded the decision over Juan Humberto in the opener when referee John Toupin stopped action after 9 minutes, 21 seconds and gave the bout to Brown because of Humberto’s rough tactics.
