On This Date:   60 year ago tonight Tuesday December 10, 1957  Nature Boy Buddy Rogers faced Ike Eakins in a No Time Limit – Falls Don’t Count “Texas Death Match” at the Eau Gallie Civic Center in Eau Gallie /  Melbourne, Florida.

This newspaper ad for the event at Eau Gallie says the civic center is “ALWAYS HEATED when necessary”  You can bet they didn’t need any added heat that night when Buddy Rogers came to town and burned the roof off!
