    Robert Louis Howell wrote: On March 27, 1970 – Tim Geohagen & Greg Peterson were to be the first team to wrestle Buddy Colt and his mystery partner. The mystery partner no-showed and they ended up losing to Buddy Colt and Homer O’Dell. (O’Dell bragged he won single handed-well he applauded Colt when Buddy saved him). The partner incidentally turned out to be Karl Von Strohiem.
