TV Wrestling - Dec.22,1962 WFMY

I just received this piece of history from my friend,Mark Eastridge. This was a short-lived wrestling show on WFMY 2 in Greensboro,NC. I was so wrapped up in watching the Roanoke and Charlotte shows on Saturday evenings back then that I missed this one. In searching the tv listings I have available right now,the show was not on the WFMY schedule at the end of October 1962 and the last time it was on the schedule was Jan.12,1963. The other odd thing is that it was a 30 minute show. Now I wonder if the show was produced in the WFMY studios and how many weeks it was on the air. At any rate,this is a great find by Mark Eastridge. Many thanks to him for sharing this.
