Macera Tops Mike Dibiase

Eugene Register-Guard – February 27, 1961

Luigi Macera and the “battling midgets” stole the show before a capacity wrestling crowd at the fairgrounds Cow Palace Saturday night.

Referee Elton Owen disqualified Mike Dibiase in the first fall of the headliner with Macera.  Macera had “Iron Mike” in a bad way in the second fall with punches and drop kicks and Wild Bill Savage avenged an out-side-the-ring trick by Savage last week and head-butted Dibiase.  Macera pinned Savage with ease.

Little Beaver, with his partner Red Taylor, beat Sky Lo-Lo with drop kicks and a flip to win the howling special event.  Tom Thumb was Lo-Lo’s partner.

The team tilt ended in a draw when Savage downed Kenny Ackles in the first fall.  Lorenzo Parente, Ackles’ partner, whip-wristlocked Savage so hard into the ropes that the top strand snapped and Savage plunged to his face and Parente scored an easy press.  Tito Kopa was Savage’s partner.

Kurt Von Poppenheim beat Pancho Valdez in the one-fall opener.
