Poster: Woods and Bravo Battle the Andersons at Fire Hall

This poster promotes a card held on Tuesday June 29th, 1976 at the Fire Hall in Farmville, VA. The main event was for the NWA World Tag Team title belts as Dino Bravo and Mr. Wrestling Tim Woods collided with Gene and Ole Anderson. Although Bravo and Woods are featured on the poster as the champions here, the Andersons actually regained the belts in Greenville, SC the night before this show.

The two teams would continue to feud throughout the summer of  1976 but the popular Bravo/Woods combo was never able to recapture the straps from the Anderson Brothers. 

It was tag team action in the semi as well with Geeto and Bolo Mongol versus Tony Atlas and Johnny Eagle, and the undercard included Larry Zbyszko, Doug Somers, Two Ton Harris, and Mr. Hayashi.

The poster has a two tone pink and yellow background with all black print, a vertical layout, and great images of the four headliners. I love the interesting details common to spot show posters such as this one like "sponsored by the Volunteer Fire Department" and you can save 50 cents by purchasing your ticket in advance, $3.50 instead of $4.00 at the door.
