Bastiens Win Mat Clash

Long Island Star-Journal – July 16, 1960

Red and Lou Bastien retained their U.S. tag-team championship last night by scoring two-out-of-three falls over John Gaber and Jack Vansky in one of the featured matches at the Island Garden, West Hempstead.

Buddy Rogers successfully defended his U.S. heavyweight crown by taking the measure of Haystacks Calhoun in 13:20.  The other championship encounter ended in a no-contest decision between TV champion Don Curtis of Long Beach and Tony Altomare.
