Two-parter this morning. Gotta get em both right. Topic is Bruno's drive towards his first championship.

What (famous) World Champion did Bruno wrestle just two months before defeating Buddy Rogers?

Bruno (legendarily, not sure if this ever really happened) had beaten Rogers previously but had refused to accept the title. What were those circumstances?

Before he faced Rogers, he wrestled Thesz.(just a guess)
He refused the title because Rogers had a heart attack.

Lou Thesz

Refused title due to Rogers being injured.

He wrestled Thesz.

He refused Buddy Rogers' title because Buddy got injured during the match, think it was his ankle (or his abdomen, started with an A). 

I just want a point, so that I can finish in last place :D

Both of these matches were in Toronto. The rogers - bruno match was Aug 2, 1962 where Buddy was injured and Bruno refused the title. Then on March 14, 1963 Loo Thez wrestled Bruno, and in May he took the belt from Rogers with the Heart Attack match in NYC

Lou Thesz.

Buddy tried to leapfrog Bruno and Bruno hit Buddy in the nuts with his forehead.  Under the circumstances, Bruno refused the victory.

Lew Thez

Raditch and I should be the only ones to get points on this because we spelt the name correctly.

Bruno refused to take the title from Buddy because Buddy took Bruno receding hairline to the nuts and couldn't continue and Italians will not take a belt that way.

Okay my friends time has expired and scoring is complete.

El Olympico had it right as did T-bolt, Wong Lee , Raditch and so forth . Bruno wrestled Lou Thesz just two months before defeating Buddy Rogers and Bruno did beat Rogers for the belt in earlier bout but because of Buddy's injury, Bruno did not accept the championship.
