El Olympico,

The 8/4/73 match has Bruno and Bruiser winning via DQ, and an apparent clean win on 8/25/73. FYI

I've got a couple other results for Bruno in Puerto Rico. You may have this one already.

The first one goes back a little farther.

March 27, 1965 Puerto Rico (not sure of the city)
Bruno Sammartino beat Eduardo Castillo

June 1978 San Juan Puerto Rico (don't have exact date yet)
Bruno Sammartino beat Pierre Martel

The NO CONTEST match between Buddy and Bruno on April 11th was televised on the regular Thursday night broadcst of "Capitol Wrestling From Washington D.C." wih iconic commentator/announcer Ray Morgan.
 
I saw this match on TV and, in fact, it was a rehearsal match and buildup for the WWWF title switch at Madison Square Garden on May 17th.  As the two combatants were returning to their corners after receiving instructions from the ref, Rogers wheeled around and charged Sammartino from behind.  Bruno smashed Buddy in the face, employed a bearhug, and then a backbreaker.  This match was almost exactly the way it went down at the Garden a month later.  
 
The big difference was that on TV they did not ring the bell and the bout was declared NO CONTEST.

Sunday, April 24, 1960 - Green Bay, WI (Brown County Arena) - Bruno Sammartino beat "John Ziasksay," who was a sub for Wayne Bock, former Chicago Cardinal. I think "Ziasksay" might be Jim Siksay, also spelled Jim Siskay.

G'day indikator,

Good find, mate!

It's interesting that the newspaper has referred to the championship as a "World Title". I was of the understanding that this championship was known as the WWWF US Tag Team Title from 1963 to 1967. Perhaps it's just newspaper semantics.  :)

The accepted title history recognises that Skull Murphy & Brute Bernard won the US Tag Team Title from from Buddy Austin & Great Scott on 16 May 1963 in Washington, DC and lost the championship to Killer Kowalski & Gorilla Monsoon on 14 November 1963, again in Washington, DC.

As you know, no mention is made of the 20 September 1963 loss by Skull Murphy & Brute Bernard to Bruno Sammartino & Vittorio "Argentine" Apollo in Asbury Park, NJ that is highlighted in your newspaper clipping.

In inspecting the results in this topic's Bruno Sammartino Record Book I note that on 5 November 1963 Bruno Sammartino & Vittorio "Argentine" Apollo wrestled Skull Murphy & Brute Bernard on TV in Bridgeport, CT. Unfortunately the result of this match is not known.

Perhaps Skull Murphy & Brute Bernard regained the US Tag Team Title on that date thus allowing them to lose the championship to Killer Kowalski & Gorilla Monsoon on 14 November 1963?  ;)

Cheers!

Ed
