Long Island Star-Journal – April 20, 1960

Bruno Sammartino, self-styled world’s strongest man, defeated Gorgeous George after six minutes and 40 seconds in their one-fall-to-a-finish match at the Sunnyside Garden last night.

In the tag team matches, Red and Lou Bastien downed Fritz Von Wallick and Tony Altomare in two straight falls; Chief Big Heart and Suni War Cloud defeated Swede Hansen and Miguel Torres in two out of three falls.

Pampero Firpo beat Tony Martinelli at 10:15 and Chet Wallick beat Jack Davis in two straight falls in a two-out-of-three match.
