British Lords Beat Arnold, Nomellini

Sacramento Bee – March 30, 1954

The English lords, Blears and Layton, defeated Don Arnold and Leo Nomellini last night in the tag team feature of the wrestling program in the Memorial Auditorium.

Layton used a body press to subdue Arnold in 19:40 for the opening fall. Arnold evened things in 14:45 by besting Blears with an airplane spin. Blears came back for the clincher to down Arnold in 9:05 with a back body drop.

The semiwindup went to Rocky Brown over Frank Valois in two straight falls, the first in seven minutes with a back breaker from which Valois was unable to recover.

The one-fall curtain raiser between Art Michalik and Aldo Bogni went 20 minutes to a draw.
