  • October 24, 1969: The Professional & Aldo Bogni faced the Assassins in Atlanta, Georgia..Robert Louis Howell wrote: Bogni was technically still managed by the Assassins, but wanted the match to show them up for forcing him to unmask as the Super Pro and thus protect their masks. The match is listed as a win for the Pro and Bogni but they were at each other the next week and Ray Mackay wrote in the Atlanta program “The Ringsider” that the Bogni/Pro alliance was disastrous. Bogni must have turned on Gilbert at some point. The Assassins were likely DQ’ed. Did anyone see this match to confirm/deny this typo?
