Sacramento Union – December 14, 1942
Most of the opponents who have been facing Ted “King Kong” Cox, claimant of the “world’s rough-house championship,” have been handicapped by lack of power to cope with his unethical tactics, while others feared him.
But this can’t be said of Jim Casey, the “Irish Thunderbolt,” who tackles him in tonight’s one hour, two out of three falls main event at the Memorial Auditorium.
While Casey perhaps has not been in the game as long as the “Lodi Dynamiter,” he has had ample experience among the elite in wrestling and, what is more, knows all tricks of the trade and isn’t afraid to meet fire with fire.
The match, in which Cox’ dangerous “diamond head twist” hold and Casey’s famous Irish Whip hold will play important parts, has the fans “het up” and indications point to promoter Johnny Rogers’ enjoying one of his biggest attendances here.
Two other corking matches follow: Abe Kashey vs. Jimmy El Pulpo, 45 minutes, two out of three falls; Dr. Freddie Meyers vs. Ivan Rasputin, 30 minutes, one fall.
