A few notes on 1963. I have included the St. Louis TV show Wrestling at the Chase results because they came from Larry Matysik's own files. As Larry notes in his book, "the dates for WatC are the air dates, as the programs were taped usually one or two weeks earlier." Air Dates. I generally don't include air dates for TV shows in ring records but including them here explains better the impact Bruiser had on St. Louis.

There are also a few Indianapolis TV results floating around from January of 1963 but I chose not to include them. I have those results in my files on my computer. However they look a little fishy to me. Bruiser probably did wrestle a few times on Indianapolis TV during January of 1963. I'm not including them for the reason listed above.

You will also see two different promotions called the AWA. Most people are familiar with Verne Gagne's AWA, the American Wrestling Association. Some people are familiar with Jim Barnett & Johnny Doyle's AWA, the American Wrestling Alliance.

Between April and July 1963, Johnny Doyle and Jim Barnett sold their interest in Denver to Dory Funk Sr. More talent came into the territory from the West Texas circuit. Dory Funk Jr. later explained it by saying: “There was a time that my father/The Amarillo Territory bought Denver from Doyle and Barnett and the surrounding towns. Later he sold Denver itself to Verne, however in the contract he did not sell the surrounding towns.”

These are the exact words on Mike DuPree on rasslinrelics.com. Mike descibes what happened in Indianapolis far better than I ever could.

Over the years, the Indianapolis based WWA (World Wrestling Association/Alliance) has gained a sort of cult following, and is always associated with its founder/co-owner, William Afflis a.k.a. Dick the Bruiser, who was also its first champion, and who went on to hold that belt 9 times.

Championship Wrestling of Indiana, Inc, first started in March of 1964, and was the brainchild of both the Bruiser and his partner, Wilbur Snyder. They had previously been working for the local promoters of the time, Jim Barnett and Balk Estes, and in fact, were their AWA tag team champions at the time they went into business for themselves.

Unlike most wrestlers of the time that took over a territory, Bruiser and Snyder made no bones about the fact they owned the promotion outright, and it had a dramatic effect on their fledgling business for some time to come. Since wrestlers could not hold a license to promote and wrestle at the same time, Bruiser and Snyder simply put the promotional license in their wives' names, and the early ads for their cards read, "L. Afflis presents.... Championship Wrestling. The real problem with this idea was, in 1964, audiences of "sports entertainment" were not as accepting of the fact that professional wrestling was more "entertainment" than "sport". There were already rival shows across town, and on October 31,1963, there was an explosion at the Indianapolis Fairgrounds Coliseum that left no suitable year round venue for some considerable time (and local fans were a bit paranoid about going to any event in the explosion's aftermath).

Bruiser and Snyder going into business for themselves seemed then like a logical step on paper. Local big stars (like the Sheik, Verne Gagne, Ray Gunkel, etc.) had long realized there was much more profit to be made by being in business for themselves, and through hook or crook, managed to slot themselves at the top of their respective territories. Bruiser and Snyder, though in the ring were a contrast, outside the ring had much in common (such as being from well to do families, being college men, being ex pro football players, being family oriented, and being fond of beer) and had formed a lasting friendship.

Bruiser had taken to working in southern California for Eileen Eaton's (Mike LeBell's) WWA office, and between the WWA office, and Verne Gagne's, they put together a loose alliance to take over and build a large Midwest territory.

When Dick and Wilbur started showing TV tapes prior to running their first wrestling card (at the Southside Armory in Indianapolis, April 25, 1964) they were showing tapes from Los Angeles. On April 22,1964,Bruiser won the WWA (California version) heavyweight title from Freddie Blassie. The California WWA title was an offshoot of Fred Kohler's heavyweight title, stemming from a match between Edouard Carpentier and Lou Thesz on 6/14/57, where Carpentier won a disputed decision over Thesz and was recognized as champ. Even though Carpentier lost that claim to the title in Omaha to Verne Gagne in August of 1958, Carpentier was recognized as champ going into a 6/12/61 match with Freddie Blassie in Los Angeles, and lost the title to Blassie. The title had gone through a succession of hands and would go back to Blassie before the April 1964 match with Bruiser. (Dick would eventually lose the California version to Dick "the Destroyer" Beyer on a count out on 7/22/64), and the tape of that match was used to build a feud between him and Bruiser in the Midwest.

On their first card, Bruiser and Snyder defended their "World tag team titles" against the Miller Brothers, going to a 60 minutes draw. Bruiser and Snyder had been Estes' AWA Tag Team champs, as a result of a victory over Cyclone Negro and the Masked Terror (Jay York) on 12/10/63 in Indianapolis. They continued to claim the now Worldwide Wrestling Alliance tag team titles, as well as Dick having the heavyweight belt. This might have been pure ego, but more than likely, it was done to establish the straps and the viability of anyone who would take them off of Bruiser and Snyder. Dick and Wilbur, in the future, would use their reps to get new talent over and develop new stars.

Bruiser bought into Kohler's promotion in 1964, it wasn't until March 6,1964, when bigger stars started to appear in Chicago, with Pat O'Connor and Art Thomas being brought in to headline at the Amphitheater. Bruiser finally headlined his first show on May 15,1964, going to a no contest with O'Connor. There were no more cards held that year in the Amphitheater until September 12, when Dick defended his WWA Heavyweight belt against O'Connor, and the team of Angelo Poffo and Nicoli Volkoff defended their newly awarded NWA Tag Team titles against Roger Kirby and Dennis Hall. Now… are you ready for this? Volkoff and Poffo had won the WWA belts from Bruiser and Snyder on 7/30/64, and lost them back to Snyder and Bruiser on 9/4/64 in Indianapolis. Poffo and Volkoff were the new tag champs in Chicago. On October 8, 1964, Bruiser and Snyder did their first live TV taping in Indianapolis at the Southside Armory, which was to be shown in Chicago as well as Indianapolis. Poffo and Volkoff, who had lost the WWA Tag Team titles, defended their newly awarded NWA Tag Team titles against Bobby Managoff and Bobby Hire. And this was in an era of kayfabe!

One other market that they went into was Detroit, working with Olympia Stadium general manager Lincoln Cavaleri. They brought in talent from Verne Gagne's AWA, including tag champs Larry Hennig and Harley Race.

So, the whole territory that was the original WWA included Chicago, Indianapolis, Detroit, Louisville, and possibly parts of Ontario (I have yet to confirm this as of this writing). It also included such towns as Champaign, Danville, Peoria, and Springfield, Ill., Evansville, Ft. Wayne, Hammond and Elkhart, Indiana.

Balk Estes folded his office in Indianapolis in September of 1964, leaving Bruiser and Snyder with run of the entire territory. Though nothing has been substantiated, there were rumors that Bruiser and Snyder may have used political pull with the athletic commission to keep anyone "unapproved" from getting a promoter's license, and therefore there was little opposition to Bruiser and Snyder in Indiana until the early 1980's, when the athletic commission was dismantled.

The territory, on paper, looked great. However, there are always logistic problems in trying to run an organization this large, coupled with the fact that in many cases, the crowds weren't that large, and in some areas, like Detroit, there was steady competition. Whatever the problems, by 1965, Bruiser and Snyder seemed to start dismantling their territory.

First, they closed up shop in Detroit in May of 1965, and wouldn't go back there until 1971. Next, Bruiser, Wilbur and Verne Gagne set up a partnership in Chicago in 1966, with Verne finishing buying Kohler out.The WWA titles were systematically eliminated, starting on February 26, 1966,with a wrestle-off between AWA champion Maurice Mad Dog Vachon and WWA champion Bruiser (leaving only Verne's AWA belts). Bruiser, as stated above, had been using several of Verne's guys in Detroit, and they may have in fact, been partners there as well.

They "leased" Louisville and Evansville to Nick Gulas in the late 60's, who eventually lost the towns to Jerry Jarrett in the 70's. They had smaller promoters such as Don Pruitt run towns in southern Indiana and Kentucky, Hammond and the Illinois towns became AWA, while Elkhart and Fort Wayne remained WWA. After that, Indianapolis basically became a farm league for the AWA and St. Louis. What Bruiser and Snyder lost in territory, they gained in power, and they had a lot of stroke in the wrestling business for most of the remainder of their careers.

Note: Added a Des Moines, IA from One Fan Gang.

Near the end of 1964 and the beginning of 1965, Dick The Bruiser and The Crusher became babyfaces/good guys in the AWA. Here's how it all went down.

Crusher lost a Loser Leaves Town match to Verne Gagne on September 5, 1964 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Bruiser and Crusher continued to be billed as AWA Tag Team Champion even with Crusher losing that match to Gagne.

Att: 4,548

Meanwhile Larry Hennig and Harley Race established themselves as the top heel/bad guy tag team in the AWA. Bruiser was still a heel in the AWA as well. On December 26, 1964 a six man tag team match was held in Minneapolis,, Minnesota pitting the Team of Verne Gagne, Wilbur Snyder and Reggie Parks against the team of Hennig, Race and Bruiser. The story of that match was Hennig and Race refusing to accept Bruiser's tag by pulling their arms back and walking down the ring apron. Bruiser eventually was pinned so Gagne, Snyder and Parks won the match.

After the match, Bruiser vowed to find his wrestling "cousin" The Crusher and find him he did. The Loser Leaves Town stipulation against Gagne months before was forgotten. Bruiser and Crusher teamed against Hennig and Race on January 17, 1965 in St. Paul, Minnesota and retained their AWA Tag Team Title. The crowd cheered Bruiser and Crusher and they became babyfaces/good guys. A rematch was scheduled for January 31, 1965 in Minneapolis Minnesota.

From the Thursday, February 4, 1965 edition of the Anderson Bulletin

Logansport, IN (UPI)
Richard Afflis, 32, Indianapolis, a professional wrestler known as Dick The Bruiser, was fined $100 and costs by City Judge Frank Tolbert Wednesday night on an assault and battery charge.

Afflis was accused of striking a waitress with a beer bottle at a local tavern Jan. 18.

The wrestler, who pleaded innocent to the charge, said the incident was an accident. He claimed he was hit in the nose.

2/5/65 St. Louis, MO @ Kiel Audutorium
NWA Champion Lou Thesz beat Pat O’Connor 1-0 54:58.
After this bout, the NWA ruled that if O’Connor had won the only fall within the time limit, he would have taken the title. Some time later, however, the rule was changed so that the challenger had to win two falls, and the deciding fall not by disqualification or count out, to get the championship. In a one-fall title duel, of course, the challenger could not earn the crown if he won by either disqualification or count-out.

Several hundred boiling mad wrestling fans milled around the hallway in front of the dressing room at the Coliseum for better than an hour last night after Dick the Bruiser was declared unfit to continue in a Texas "death match." Dr. L.J.Holliday of Lafayette,state athlectic commissioner who also is team physician for Jeff's Broncho's, stopped Bruiser's match with Gene Kiniski because of blood flowing from a cut in Bruiser's forehead. The cut was inflicted, according to ringside reports, before the match began when Kiniski clouted Bruiser with the championship belt. Six stitches were required, & official said the crowd became enraged because Kiniski purportedly was out on the mat, while Bruiser, with blood streaming down his face, still was ready to fight. Bruiser had thrown Kiniski 5 times prior to the stopping of the bout. Police were unable to move the crowd out. Shouts of "fake" & demands for money returns were made, but eventually the fans dispersed. They were calling & visiting The Star with bitter complaints. More than 6,000 attended the match.

As soon as I get done with 1966, I'll add all these other listings. I also have some other stuff I found to add. Also need to go to DuPree's site and get the correct names of the Indianapolis venues.

Bruiser did wrestle several matches on Minneapolis television aka All Star Wrestling for you AWA die hards during 1966 but I'm not including them because the AWA ran the squash TV format and rarely ran angles on TV to set up programs. St. Louis on the other hand had more competitive matches and did run angles to set up programs. If you really want to see what TV matches Bruiser wrestled in Minneapolis, go to the All My AWA results thread. You can see them there.

5/27/66 Indianapolis, IN @ Northside Armory
From the Indianapolis Star 5/26/66; Dick the Bruiser & Bob Ellis teamed for the first time face the Masked Assassins in Friday night's headliner at the Northside Armory.

They asked the State Athletic Commission to bar their opponent's manager from Ringside. Merle Alte, SAC executive secretary, took the request under advisement but indicated there was no regulation barring "seconds" from ring activities in Indiana.

Two Weeks ago Ray Heenan, the manager, interfered in a bout involving the  Bruiser & Ernie Ladd against the Assassins & the resulting disqualification kept the Bruiser-Ladd duo from taking the world's tag team title from the champs.

Alte indicated however that a state commissioner would be at ringside to prevent another such occurance.

Results:
WWA Tag Team Champions The Assassins drew Dick The Bruiser & Bob Ellis when the 60 minute time limit ran out in the 3rd fall
Luis Martinez beat Angelo Poffo
