Tampa Grapple Card Monday

St. Petersburg Times – January 27, 1963

Tampa – Wrestling will switch to Monday night at the Fort Homer Hesterly Armory tomorrow night for two weeks and promoter Cowboy Luttrall has capped his four-event program with a six-man Australian tag team match with Wild Red Berry and Saul Weingeroff in action.

Berry and the Kangaroos, Roy Heffernan and Al Costello, will meet Weingeroff and Kurt and Karl Von Brauner under Texas death match rules on a winners-take-all basis.  Regular falls will give wrestlers rest periods of one minute but will not count toward the decision.  Action will continue until a team concedes or wrestlers are unable to answer the bell.

Other events arranged by promoter Luttrall are Reggie Parks vs. Hiro Matsuda, Don Curtis vs. Billy Parks, and Harry Smith vs. Dale Lewis.
