Gorgeous George may have been the most gorgeous guy on view during Pavilion wrestling shenanigans Friday night but he didn’t come out of the scrambling a winner.
Gentleman Ed Francis dumped the famed mat dandy in straight falls in about 25 minutes, the first on a disqualification and the second via the sleeper hold.
A near-capacity crowd watched Mighty Ursus and Dave Ruhl take a come-from-behind best-of-three fall victory over Alberto Torres and Johnny Walker in one of the two tag matches. The Brunetti brothers, Joe and Guy, also came from behind to defeat the fiendish duo of John Smith and The Mongol. The winning teams clash next week with the international tag crown at stake.
Eric The Red lost $50 in his forfeit challenge to pin Gino Marella within 10 minutes. His money boosts the pot to $150 and another grappler will go after that prize next week.
It’s also likely that promoter Stu Hart will give Smith another crack at Francis in what would be a main event battle.

An assist, Jerry Meeker to the Cardiff Giant, provided the pair with a victory in the tag team wrestling match at the Masonic temple last night.
Meeker slugged Stu Hart, then rolled him to the Giant, who pinned him for the last fall. Hart and Suni War Cloud had won one fall to be even with their opponents at the time.
Hart continued to battle both of his foes after the fall had been called, declaring it had been illegal.
Newcomer Bill Stack took the preliminary from Frank Hickey, two falls to one.
