Watching Billy Goelz is quickly becoming a ticket to awesome match of the day. This was all friendly grappling, not a single punch being thrown, and you can see it must have been pretty state of the art for 1958, with even some british influenced spots on display. Russ points out there are about 7 holds in wrestling, but my god what you can do with these holds. Fantastic arm work here. Nichols also looked real good, but Goelz had the more outstanding selling. I sense these 20 minute draws were a staple of the time and Goelz executed them like a total pro.
