Claw, back somewhere between 1982 and 1984 Andre won a battle royal in Portales NM at the Jr High gym.  Amarillo was closed and the WWE hadn't started its national expansion yet.  You by any wild chance have any obscure Eastern NM or West Texas cards that Andre might have appeared on during this time frame?

This happened, I saw it with my own eyes and the only rassler I can remember being on the card was Andre.

Port,

You know that area better than I do. Amarillo was closed up huh. So does that mean World Class had not started running in West Texas yet? If you can remember when World Class did start running Amarillo, then we can say the card had to be before a time frame. I know I don't have the Portales card. What I'll have to do is place Andre in Texas or California and then we'll do some guess work.

Who is this guy? Supposedly a Las Vegas area wrestler?  Has a wrestling school ?Should I be "bonging"? Should everyone check their dead pool scorecards?

James “Buffalo Jim” Barrier dead at 55

Monday, Apr. 7, 2008

Father, big-hearted activist, wrestling impresario, auto shop owner and columnist James “Buffalo Jim” Barrier died yesterday. According to preliminary information from the coroner’s office, Barrier died from natural causes at the Motel 6 on 4125 Boulder Highway. But journalist and former City Councilman Steve Miller, a longtime friend of Barrier, suspects foul play and has contacted the FBI.


Another article in the Canadian Free Press elaborates here.

Beej mocks me.  I have an obscure memory about an old timey rasslin card and I ask the guy with all the old timey rasslin cards available in his hard drive.

Never heard of Buffalo Jim but then again there are zillion Independent wrestlers I'm not familiar with.

Re: Cards in Portales

The only Portales listings I've ever seen are from the posters Mikey Bauman has. Portales listings are hard to come by as are most cities in New Mexico. Albuquerque is the main New Mexico city you see listings for. I've seen a few for Roswell, Farmington, Clovis, Las Cruces and Sante Fe.

Mike Bauman is a king among men and one of the most knowlegeable historians of his passion in the country.

You're right. I confused Portales with Clovis. Mikey is the guy with the Clovis posters.
