I saw a number of these shows in the Flair73 PDFs at various times.   When I did the DeNucci record book, 1982 was the year Dominic finished in the WWF and started as one of the headliners here within a few short months.    It was kind of interesting in following how DeNucci was slowly but surely being phased down and out with New York as far back as 1980.

 

I believe Tom Burke was the promoter of record when this group had stops in Massachusetts.

This was DeNucci's promotion. Bruno had a role in it, too.

I think we need a McKigney card thread.

I also have a Canadian Geography question. Scarborough or Toronto? Is Scarborough actually part of Toronto?

According to Wikipedia, Scarborough was incorperated into Toronto in 1998. So it wasn't part of Toronto during old timey wresslin' days.

do have a large collection of Wildman shows , much of the later era is in Vance;s archives

yes Scarborough was a suburb of Toronto , there was the main city (still is really) and then all the small suburbs attached around it , so when you see Brampton, Etobicoke, Markham those are all really Toronto , referred to as the GTA - Greater Toronto Area

The Beast in these shows was a local wrestler, Ken Ciementi or something like that was his name
