A friend of mine posted this on the KM Message board and I thought some one on here might know the answer:

This was the first show I attended........Unfortunately, the intervening 48 years have blurred my memory, since I did not buy the program......I only can remember that Sammartino lost to Scicluna via a d/q gimmick with the roll of dimes and Scicluna was a bloody mess.........I would seriously like to know who else was on the card, because I'd like to know if I saw any wrestler that night that I may have never seen again......I followed this up by attending the show in the Newark, NJ Armory in February 1967.......Then I went to MSG on 7-31-67, and was there for every show for the next 18 years, even working for Capitol concessions, helping them sell the programs and magazines at the shows throughout the NY/NJ/Philadelphia area for many years.............I have always wondered who else I saw that first night, in 1966 besides Sammartino and Scicluna.......No results website seems to have this information..........If anyone has the Philadelphia Arena program from November 19, 1966 I would greatly appreciate learning of the line-up if not the results......Thank you very much.........

This was my friend's response:

Thank you!!!!!!!.............Thank you!!!!!!!!!!.............Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

For many years I have wondered who I saw that night........As I wasn't "into it" yet, Sammartino/Scicluna was the only match that made a real impression on me.......I always thought that Apollo was on the card, as I always had a vague memory that there was a barefoot guy........I still remember how amazing it was that the crowd responded as they did to what seemed to me to be so theatrical.......I found it especially amusing how much the wrestlers interacted with the customers, something I had never seen in any other sports event.......And the guy I went with was a real mark........And a Philadelphia policeman!!!!!!!.......But I must admit they did have me fooled for a long time, especially about the blading.....
