My small town of Owensboro, Ky was not a major stop for wrestling promotions back in the day, but we did get some action throughout the decades. I like to go through our newspaper's microfilm and look up our wrestling history.

Here are the complete cards from 1958. Gorgeous George was the highlight that year. I've posted about that show before. I attached a capture of the newspaper ad at the end of this post.

The only promoter named was Johnny Carlin in the August 8 ad.

(W) refers to the winner of the match.
