Fritz Von Erich and Hans Hermann under the ring at MLG Nov 27 1958

Fritz had been battling Whipper Watson when Hermann came out to protest during the bout to referee Burt Maxwell. After Fritz had tossed Whipper over the ropes, Whipper returned in an agitated state to pummel Fritz and Hermann jumped into the fray to help his sometime tag partner. The fans hopped into the fun and the two heels hightailed it under the ring -as many before had done- to escape the fans wrath. Joe Perlove wrote the next day that they were 'actually trespassing on the property of such as Wild Bill Longson and Nanjo Singh', both of whom had spent a considerable time there usually after bouts with Whipper.
