 - Ail-Star Wrestling's tag team main event...
Ail-Star Wrestling's tag team main event Wednesday night at the 4-H Club Show Barn turned into a slugfest which ended in defeat for the team of Ben Matta and Mil Mascaras. Tommy ' O'Brien, the referee, left the ring fully aware that the crowd did not like his method of calling matches. Several times, the team of Matta and Mascaras made successful tags only to be pushed from the ring because the ref didn't see the tag. This provided even more excitement to the already fast moving main event. In the first fall, Matta and Mascaras, even though they fell to Sir Charles Montague and the Great Malenko, made fools of the Englishman and the Russian. Using superior speed and cunning, the pair lured Malenko and Montague into several traps which ended with both of them lying fiat on their backs in the middle of the ring. With both Malenko and Montague in the ring most of the time, they managed to wear Matta down enough to take the first fall. Matta and Mascaras took the second fall. Mascaras was the big man in the second fall which saw him mutilate both Malenko and Montague in their own comer. At the end of the second fall, his lordship graciously assisted his partner to his feet after he had been , rendered helpless by the Masketj Mexican. NTljfe"third;: fall went to Malenko, after he and Montague had beaten Matta and apparently injured his back. After the match was over, Matta was lying on his stomach and Malenko and Montague left the ring, the victors. An arm-wrestling exhibition was given during the program pitting Montague against Mascaras. A table and two chairs were placed in the ring to make the match legal. As expected Montague found a way to make the match illegal. Montague would grab the leg of Malenko in order to have a brace to pull on. Malta made sure that they did not win this sharply every time he got near wav bv kicking Malenko (See WRESTLING, Page 10A) FLYING DRDPKICK-Ben Matta, in.the air. throws a crushing Malenko, on the right, during the main event of All-Star Wednesday .-His partner/:Mil Mascaras (orr-the?:ieft) waits Mascaras lost the match to Malenko and Sir Charles Montague in scheduled at the request of Matta and Mascaras because of Montague and Malenko in last week's main event.
