Then comes the tag match, a continuous, exciting bit of everything possible on the wrestling mat over a 90-minute time limit period if necessary, with the decision going to the team that first wins two falls. When one of a team is pinned, he must leave the ring and let his partner battle it out with the other couple until he whips both, alternately, or is vanquished himself. Then, after a short rest period, the teams start battling over again. If Rodriquez goes about, his part of a wrestling show in his usual manner, he's likely to infuriate both his opponents and make it a tough evening for Mr. Saur, who has had ruffled foes to deal with in many big-time bouts and may make the fur fly tonight when the rough stuff starts.
