Oakland, California
The Auditorium

September 26, 1980
Promoter Antone Leone

Bobo Brazil pinned Rip Hawk

Wilbur Snyder dcor Jerry Valiant

Pampero Firpo over Roger Kirby

Pepper Gomez over Alex Perez

This is from Wrestling Then & Now the July 1998 issue.

In an article from Scott Teal's Whatever happened to?
Roger Kirby says that he went out to wrestle for Leone for about a year and was sort of his body guard as well as a wrestler. Leone made big money from restaurants he owned and was looking for a tax write off so he promoted wrestling.

Brazil and Snyder flew out for a week or two just so Leone could BS with some of his buddies from the old days.

I saw that and have started making my own Rockford file. Bitterwind has done so much Rockford research that I need it all in one place.

I was going through old wrestling results posts on KM and came across these two cards. Both were held in Zion, Illinois which is near Waukegan.

They were under the thread 

OLD SCHOOL MAT RESULTS
WAUKEGAN AREA
RESEARCHED BY GEORGE LENTZ

Zion, IL
Zion Benton HS
September 28, 1956
Wilbur Snyder vs Dick the Bruiser
Angelo Poffo vs Billy Melby
Ada Ash vs Rose Roman

Zion, IL
Zion Benton HS
May 11, 1957

US Title Match
Wilbur Snyder over Boris Volkoff
Special Ref Joe Louis



My mistake.
I see one of the cards listed already.
The 1956 card was listed.
