New Years Eve 1959

There were a few New Years Eve shows at MLG and a few on New Years Day.

I would take this one from Dec 31 1959. Whipper Watson and Ilio Dipaolo finally beat Gene Kiniski and Don Leo Jonathon for the Canadian Open Tag Title. Tunney had the main event go on at 9pm and the midgets after that to enable people to move to their parties around town if desired.

Besides the main event stars good chance to see a young Don Jardine (aka The Spoiler), Sam Steamboat, Pat Flanagan and Tim Geohagen.

Happy New Year
