Over the years, the Indiana Pacers had a few interesting halftime events including fan sock hops and cow-milking contests. In April 1975, the Pacers had a special halftime show featuring Victor the Wrestling Bear.

The game program stated that: "Victor will be at the game to take on such noted wrestlers as Chet Coppock, sports director at WISH-TV, Reb Porter at WIFE radio and several other special opponents. If time permits, Victor will also wrestle a couple of fans."

What most of us want to know is if the Pacers' Bob Netolicky took off his warmup jacket that night and tussled with Victor. Neto?
