One thing that could effect newspaper results was this was a Saturday evening card. And often the editor desk closed early on Saturday's and results weren't picked up. Some cities they would post the results on Mondays or not at all.

Do you have access to Dallas Times? It would be an easy check at a library.

Newspaper archive only has 1920 and 1921.

I was able to find this ad in the Dallas Morning News (genealogybank.com).  There are results for Sportatorium shows around this same time, but I searched the entire sports section the days after the show and couldn't find anything.
The Dallas Times Herald is available online, but so far they've only posted through the late 1800s

Found these results in the Fort Worth Star Telegram.  They have a pay wall, but show clips of the article highlighting the searched for term.  Buy searching for a phrase at the bottom of the displayed clip you can eventually read the whole article.  It's easier to get a subscription, but for one card this method works.


“Superbowl of Wrestling”
June 5, 1976 in Irving, TX
Texas Stadium drawing 17,000
 
 1.  Peter Maivia beat Don Fargo.
 2.  Rick Martel drew Red Bastien.
 3.  Rocky Johnson beat Larry Sharpe.
 4.  Andre the Giant beat The Mongolian Stomper & JJ Dillon in a “handicap” match.
 5.  Diamond Lil beat Darling Dagmar.
 6.  El Santo & Jose Lothario beat Tim Brooks & Paul Pershman.
 7.  NWA World Champ Terry Funk DCO Fritz Von Erich.

Wow! Thank you Flair73!

Guess Buddy wasn't remembering wrong all along. He was pretty descriptive in how the match went down even talked about where the ring was set up (similar to how it was for Fritz retirement). And how strange it was going onto that field.

Thanks Flair73. I've wondered about the full line up of this card for ages. It makes me wonder about what happened to Lord Alfred Hayes. He was billed in all the advance advertisments as teaming with Killer Tim Brooks against El Santo and Jose Lothario. What caused him to miss this big card?

Hayes was wrestling for All Japan in the NWA World Champion Series. He was on the tour from May 21 to June 17. The question is: why was he billed on this card when there was no way he was going to be there?

That's pretty common, I mean sometimes it's as simple as whomever is doing the publicity didn't get the right word from the boss.

Not sure who was placing calls or visits to the newspaper during this time. Was Red Bastien booking at the times?

Red Bastien was the booker. On one hand, I get that mistakes are made. However, the ad ran unchanged for weeks. There was time to correct it had anyone noticed or cared (perhaps they didn't). Was anyone here watching local TV at the time? Was Hayes pushed on TV as being at Texas Stadium?

Think you answered your own question. They didn't care and those guys didn't probably didn't even double check the ad when it ran.

What interests me at this point is whether or not Hayes was pushed on TV as working the show. Since the tapes are likely long gone and the concerned parties are largely deceased or don't remember, it would take finding someone who saw it and remembers, an unlikely occurrence.

Now does anyone have either the lineup or results for the 1972 card?

June 24, 1972 - Texas Stadium - Irving, TX
1. El Santo and Jose Lothario defeated Terry Funk and Mr. Fuji
2. George Scott vs. Tommy Siegler, time limit draw
3. Lord Littlebrook defeated Cowboy Lang
4. Mil Mascaras defeated The Alaskan
5. Bearcat Wright won a seven man Roulette match
6. Billy Red Lyons defeated The Spoiler
7. Stan Stasiak defeated Red Bastein
8. Dory Funk, Jr. vs. Fritz Von Erich, one hour time limit draw, Terry Funk was banned from ringside

Attendance was announced at 26,339

I'm pretty sure The Alaskan was Mike York who homesteaded in Texas in the 1970s.

The show had an 8:00 PM bell time for a Saturday night show.

The card was billed as The Parade of Champions.
