The Afro-American – September 4, 1954


Two aggressive and popular women wrestlers will inject considerable punch into Promoter Vince McMahon’s outdoor wrestling carnival headlining a best-two-of-three-falls feature involving Antonino Rocca and Verne Gagne at Griffith Stadium next Thursday night.

Babs Wingo, 21, five-foot, three-inch, 150-pounder former hat check girl from New Orleans who now makes Columbia, S.C., her home, has been matched with Betty White, 20, former Columbus, Ohio, school girl who now resides in Atlanta, Ga., in a special one-fall, 30-minute affair.
