Caption/Description

Flung from the strong shoulder of Blonde Gene Stanlee, the Mr. America of the wrestling ring, Antonino Rocca straightens out for a three-point landing. Seconds before, Stanlee brough Rocco to a mid-air position, even with the ropes, before turning him loose. Their star attraction match, March 6 at Madison Square Garden ended in a draw after 45 minutes.
