Sacramento Union – January 18, 1955
Lord James Blears and Jesus Ortega rallied last night in Memorial Auditorium to win an Australian tag team match against young Johnny Barend and Enrique Torres.
Barend pinned Blears for the first fall in 12 minutes with a flying head scissors and body press. But Blears came back to nail Barend in 7:35 with an arm bar. The deciding fall was won by Blears over Barend in 6 minutes with a hammerlock.
Big Bob Orton spotted the first fall to Dr. Tim Geohagen on a sleeper hold, then came back to pin the Irish strongman twice with a body press and body slam.
Gene Dubuque went to a draw with Ramon Torres in the 20-minute opener.
