Tag Team Match Is Standoff

Honolulu Star-Bulletin – February 10, 1966

Ripper Collins and Tosh (Oddjob) Togo grappled to a standoff against Neff Maiava and Gil Ane in a tag team wrestling match at Civic Auditorium last night.

Collins scored the first fall, pinning Ane with an atomic drop. Then Maiava subdued Collins with head butts to even the score. Time ran out before the third fall could be marked up and the match ended in a draw.

The final event of the night also ended in a draw when both Nick Bockwinkel and Johnny Barend were counted out of the ring on the third and decisive fall.

Bockwinkel took the first fall with a submission hold and Barend squared matters with an atomic hold on the second fall.

In preliminaries, Nick Kozak scored two straight falls to defeat Beauregarde and Dean Higuchi won on a disqualification against the Golden Terror.
