Arena Has J Tag Team, PLUS! Profesional wrestling prompter prompter Herb Welch is offering offering a double main event tonight tonight at Legion Arena. The top match is the tag • team affair, putting the Medics against Corsica Joe and Dwayne Peal. All four are solid performers, all are crowd-pleasers. Or perhaps perhaps crowd-baiters is the more apt description for the Medics. The last time the team was cheered was a week ago when the masked guys tackled the masked Assassins. Assassins. Spectators didn't have much choice. * * * The bout is down for 60 minutes or less, best-of- three. In another bout, under a similar time limit and rules, big Mario Milano has drawn Luke Graham. Again, both are solid mem- r'bers of their trade. Graham and the promoter have had their differences —in the rings of other towns where Welch still holds forth as a wrestler. Chances are they'll get along just fine tonight. Graham will likely have enough to think about when he's in there with Milano. First bell at 8:30. Admissions are 75 cents for adults, a quarter for children. Ringside reserved seats may be purchased inside inside the Arena. The promoter did not name a referee. Welch evidently evidently wanted to make sure "who he wss getting." Good refs are hard to come by these days. The Assassins complained complained to Welch that the Medics Medics used something like -brass knucks in winning last week but the promoter didn't investigate the claim hinting that they were sore just because they hadnt thought of it first
