Saturday, February 28, 1953
Los Angeles, California - Valley Garden Arena
Wilbur Snyder drew Myron Cox
Tom Renesto drew Ray Gideon
Count DaVinci beat Juan Sepeda (2-1)
Lord Leslie Carlton beat Kay Bell (2-1)
NOTE: Wilbur Snyder's professional wrestling debut. Other sources incorrectly have Snyder's debut on February 1, 1952 against Ted Cox.

Saturday, March 7, 1953
Los Angeles, California - Valley Garden Arena
Wilbur Snyder beat Golden Terror
Johnny James (sub. Frank Murdoch) drew Baron DaVinci

Saturday, March 21, 1953
Los Angeles, California - Valley Garden Arena
Dick Chaffins drew Thor Hagen
Wilbur Snyder beat Bob Corby
Warren Bockwinkel beat Chris Zahraias (2-1)
Pacific Coast Heavyweight Champion Baron Michele Leone drew Sandor Szabo (1-1)

NOTE: The LA Times on March 24 had a short article starting that Sandor Szabo would face both Wilbur Snyder and Chris Zaharias on the same date at the South Gate Arena. There was a separate article running down the full evening's card with no mention of this. The results the next day match the card listed without Szabo/Snyder/Zaharias. Jim's results list the advertised Snyder match with a note that WAYLI record the match as a draw. From the articles in the LA Times, the Snyder-Szabo contest, if it indeed took place, seems to have been a promotional event that was not part of the regular South Gate card. An Article in the April 8 Valley Times (North Hollywood) stated that Snyder had had eight professional matches. If this is correct, of which there is no guarantee, there was no official match on March 24.

NOTE: Jim's results have Wilbur Snyder facing Fritz Schnabel at the Wilmington Bowl on April 6. This is not correct, and there was no Wilmington card on this date.

Friday, April 10, 1953

NOTE: The cards from Ocean Park were televised live throughout the Los Angeles area. There were no previews or results in the LA Times, but this match was listed in the TV guide. Jim's list had Snyder winning the match, but I cannot independently confirm this.

NOTE: Jim's list has Snyder facing Great Bolo on "Hollywood TV" on April 17. Snyder was not on the Santa Monica card on this date, which was the local Friday night TV in the Los Angeles area. Al Lovelock was working in San Francisco at this time, and wasn't using the Bolo gimmick. Given all this, I don't think that this match listing is correct.
