Rhodes Headlines Wrestling Card

Rome News-Tribune – April 19, 1978

Things are apt to get a little “Dusty” Thursday night at Rome’s Memorial gymnasium, much to the delight of professional wrestling fans in the area.

Dusty Rhodes is returning to Rome that night to headline a four-match card that begins at 8:30 p.m.  The weekly programs are sponsored jointly by the Rome-Floyd Recreation Authority and Georgia Championship Wrestling, Inc.

Rhodes has held numerous pro wrestling titles and has appeared several times in Rome.  This time he’s paired against Stan Hanson in one of the feature attractions of the night.

Another feature pits the A.W.A. champion, Nick Bockwinkle against Mr. Wrestling II.

Then there’s a big tag team match which offers the team of Wolfgang and Helmut Schmidt against the duo of Adrian Adonis and Pistol Pez Whatley.

In a final match, Pierre LeFebvre will tangle with the Mighty Invader.

Advance ringside seat tickets may be purchased at the offices of the Authority on West Third Street.  General admission and children’s tickets go on sale at the box office some two hours before the first match.
