1966: A match Southern Tag Team Champions Enrique & Ramon Torres and the Red Raiders was ruled a no contest in a title bout at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium for Georgia Championship Wrestling promoter Paul Jones. The Raiders were initially declared the winners, but the decision was nixed when it was discovered they had used a cloth with a substance in an attempt to subdue Enrique. It was later reported to have been chloroform, after an empty bottle of carbon tetrachloride was found in the dressing room. The Raiders were reportedly fined $100 each for their actions.
