From Wrestling King of Sports published by Joe Shedlock.

Connersville, IN
Wed August 6, 1980
Fayette County Fairground

World Title Match
Dick the Bruiser & Spike Huber DDQ Jerry Valiant & Roger Kirby
Bobo Brazil pinned Paul Christy
Tiny Hampton beat Greg Lake
Sheik Ali Hassan drew El Bracero

Story also says that Sam Menacker will be present as will ring announcer Bob Beach.
Referee will be Bill Beach.
Story also claims that Bob Luce set up this rematch after Kirby & Valiant beat Huber & Bruiser in Kansas City a month earlier.
Classic Luce next here. He brought this match to Connersville instead of the Amphitheatre to reward the great fans of the county.
Veteran promoter Matt Mercurio will come out of retirement to help with the card.

The card eventually was held inside at The Armory due to rain.

The Russian Brute dropped off some of his wrestling stuff that he's had for ages pertaining to his career. There are a few programs and posters featuring Bruiser in his later years.
This was a card held an Chicago's St. Rita HS Gym on the South Side of Chicago.

I was at this card but didn't write down the date or anything at the time. A bunch of us went because the Brute was a neighborhood guy and we went to see him.



Chicago, IL
St. Rita HS Gym
October 17, 1986
SRO Crowd about 1,200 in the gym

Dick the Bruiser beat The Wild Polynesian Man

Prince Saad Muhammed beat Moose Cholak by COR

The Super Destroyers drew Bounty Hunter Bobby Vann & Nature Boy Rick Fury

Judy Starfire beat Misty Dawn

Calypso Jim over The Streetwalker

The Super Destroyers were The Russian Brute and another guy who also doubled as
The Monsters of the Mat on Bob Luce's TV show at the time.

Here's the original line up sheet for a Waukesha card in 1987.

The main event is already posted here but I'll add the rest of the card. Plus the date is off a few days and Frankie DeFalco subbed ofr Silo Sam. It's hard to believe that one.

International Wrestling Federation
Waukesha, WI
Expo Center
November 27, 1987 (Friday)

US Tag Title Match
Champions Dr. X & The Super Destroyer
vs
Dick the Bruiser & Silo Sam
results show that Sam was a no-show and Frankie DeFalco subbed and he and Bruiser won the title. Milwaukee historian George Lentz has confirmed the results.

Chain match
Rocky Brewer vs Terry Hart

Chris Markoff vs Billy Robinson

Rock & Roll Buck Zumhoff vs The Wild Man

Eddie Hibbell vs Jeff Jakubiak

I'm also wondering how and when Bruiser & DeFalco eventually dropped these tag titles or if there was a reversal later.
