Here are two from Hammond, 1981 that are in a wrestling results bulletin up for bid on Ebay right now. The scan from one of the pages shows these two. I plan to bid on the issue.
If anyone wants to look at these and a lot more results do so by tomorrow when the bidding is over.
Go to EBay and punch in Wrestling Newletter 1981 for a few different issues then scan to bottom where the seller shows about 7-8 different pages of results.

Note: The results I have list The Steiners over Hase & Chono in a tag bout and PN News & Sting over Muta & Hansen in a tag bout.

Bruiser was a special referee for WCW a few times. Once in Chicago. I'll need to check for the exact date. And once on PPV. Was it the Black Scorpion blow off fiasco? Again I'll need to check. There probably are other Bruiser results from late in his career on KM. I'll just have to use the right search words.

I still need to type some more newspaper articles before I'm finished. If anybody can add anything else, I'd sincerely appreciate it. Thanks to all that have helped so far. I also need to double check George Lentz's Crusher Lisowski record book for the umpteenth time to see if I missed anything. Also need to check some old editions of Meltzer's newsletter. Might be a gem or two there. 

Edit: Added Rich's Danville, Illinois card.

Edit: Added a Glenbard East High School card from Glen Rylko.

Note: Added a Farmington, MI card from Redman via Rich Tito.

Note: Thanks to Roger Deem for pointing out an error on the 8/2/85 St. Louis card.

Was it the Black Scorpion blow off fiasco? Again I'll need to check.

Yes it was.

By the way, you missed the card I posted with the full results from Dick the Bruiser's first proper match in Reno.

Thanks to all who helped with the Bruiser book so far.

I may have missed these results and they may be printed here but I remember reading that Bruiser also appeared in these places.

New Orleans area when Watts was booking. Watts himself told us that Bruiser needed a week to get away from the wife so Watts booked Bruiser in Mississippi and Louisiana. This had to be around 76 I'd say. Bruiser had matches with Abdullah and Karl Kox during this week.

West Virginia in the early to mid 60's in a feud with Johnny Valentine that hit Huntington and Charleston.

Alabama when he and Snyder took a short road trip down there and worked for Bob Kelly a few times.

I have never heard of Bruiser working for Mid Atlantic or Portland, Oregon.

Greenville, Mississippi came up empty. There were a tons of ads saying no wrestling in Greenville this week but wrestling will return to Greenville in the near future.

Looking through an old Wrestling News from 1976 it says that Buck Robley brought bounty hunters Dick the Bruiser and Ray Stevens into Tulsa and Oklahoma City to try to put Dick Murdock out of commission. No dates though.
