I was reading over on another board that the first match Bruiser had in New York after the Garden Riot match had Bruiser not wanting to leave the ring after a bottle was thrown in his direction.

Seems he wanted to stay in the ring and was inviting fans to climb into the ring and battle it out. It finally took some NYPD cops to get him out of the ring.

 

The way I'm reading this is that maybe McMahon Sr. & Company figured that Bruiser couldn't be trusted anymore to settle down his act and a second riot just might close down MSG for a long while.

 

So maybe Bruiser was never formally barred from New York but McMahon & Co. certainly didn't want him around. That would explain his wrestling in Buffalo. NY.

 

What do you think Claw?

Possible or do you see any holes in that reasoning?

I don't think they wanted him around either Rich. It didn't matter much in the big picture. Bruiser in so many ways was an outlaw. He later had ties to the NWA (Muchnick) and ties to the AWA (Gagne). There was no need for Bruiser in the WWWF although later he did wrestle in Pittsburgh for Bruno. Pittsburgh was not WWWF proper at that time. The only downside I can see to Bruiser not wrestling for old man Vince the first is they did not get a Bruno vs Bruiser program. That would have drawn HUGE.

I'll start re-doing Bruiser's early years in the record book on Tuesday. I'm almost done adding all Tim Hornbaker's research to my files. Believe me Tim Has a shitload of it. And it takes time to edit it the way I want it to look without leaving out all the details Tim has. The Rise and Fall of Fred Kohler in Chicago is fascinating.
