Looking through what I do have for Graham, and trying to guess missing Chicago show dates, then comparing to Bruisers record, I come up with these "possible" Chicago dates. To me it looked like Chicago ran Friday or Saturday nights. So I came up with 5 possible dates if that video was indeed from Chicago.

April 20, 1973
October 12, 1973
October 13, 1973

July 6, 1974
August 17, 1974

I eliminated 1975 because of Graham being a face

You could eliminate Oct 13, 1973 because Bruiser was in Indianapolis that night teaming with Bruno Sammartino.

August 17, 1974 was too close to the big Comiskey Park card for anything to be held here in Chicago. Comiskey was Sept 7 and they usually took off 4-6 weeks before a ballpark card.

I'll try to get a hold of the guy who wrote the Bruiser bio. He has a ton of info.

Also don't know if you had this tag match in Chicago.

May 25, 1973

Bruiser & Wahoo McDaniel beat Superstar Graham & Ernie Ladd.

Richard Vicek, who wrote the biography on Bruiser, checked Bruiser's calendar book for 1973 and 1974 and can find only the St. Louis match listed as a singles match for Bruiser against Superstar Graham.

The Chicago tag match listed above is the other match up.

I was probably thinking of the tag match when I thought Graham met Bruiser one-on-one in Chicago.

Vicek has Bruiser's calendar books for many of the years Bruiser promoted and double checked.

My bad.

I bet the footage was Mike Gratchner behind the camera. He had a ton of stuff in Chicago and STL over the years and was smart enough to get the highlights to tell the story of the match when 8mm cameras' limitations were not conducive to complete bouts.

The newspapers.com archive is in the process of adding Muncie, IN among other Indiana cities. There's a boatload of Bruiser matches including the earliest "Crusher" and "Bruiser" tag bouts in Fall of '59 in Muncie. (one of them vs. Nick Bockwinkel and Don Eagle). I'll post them as the papers become more searchable.
