This may not be a great way to decipher anomalies, but it might get people to look at results more closely to see if they can find explanations for one off bouts with decisive finishes listed as concurrent during a time one of the wrestlers is known to be touring Japan, Australia, Europe or something where it is unlikely they would fly stateside and work one match.

Possibly for storyline purposes but usually a wrestler was booked someplace else to explain their departure, as time bears out with more results found. In the Slaughter and DeNucci examples, there are cards posted which I don't think are fabricated for entire tours. More likely is the statewide one off bouts had a substitute for these guys, or the date itself is incorrect. As always, research can be an inexact science.

I have a suspicion that some of the old results collectors from years ago sometimes made up results of cards where they only knew the lineup. There is also the issue that the results from the newspapers were often given to the newspapers from someone in the office. For papers that only printed results, they may only have said who won.

I know of at least 3 Chicago main events that I personally attended that were reported differently. I think the results guy may have been a big fan of the wrestler in dispute.
Clawmaster changed the results when I was able to give him proof.  Claw said that he would only overturn the results if I could prove it.
The funny thing is that I was there and the guy reporting it was probably 500 miles away.

The correct date of the Hershey card is March 18. Likewise, DeNucci & Sammartino defeated Ramos & Tanaka in Philadelphia on March 9, not April 9. Not sure about Baltimore. Those Pittsburgh matches were probably TV taped.

G’day All,

I appreciate the theme of this topic but I just wanted to reinforce One Fan Gang’s point that Dominic DeNucci was definitely wrestling in Australia on the dates of the two Pittsburgh results (26 July 1968 and 31 July 1968).

Here’s DeNucci’s results on and around those dates:

Friday 26 July 1968 at Sydney Stadium in Sydney, NSW, Australia
* Texas Death Match for IWA World Tag Team Title: Baron Scicluna & Cyclone Negro (Champions) defeated Dominic DeNucci & Mario Milano

Saturday 27 July 1968 at Melbourne Festival Hall in Melbourne, VIC, Australia
* Dominic DeNucci & Killer Kowalski defeated Dr Bill Miller & Cyclone Negro

Sunday 28 July 1968 at Melbourne TV Taping in Melbourne, VIC, Australia
* Dominic DeNucci defeated Baron Scicluna on Disqualification

Monday 29 July 1968 at Thebarton Hall in Adelaide, SA, Australia
* IWA World Tag Team Title: Dominic DeNucci & Mario Milano defeated Baron Scicluna & Cyclone Negro (Champions) on Disqualification

Wednesday 31 July 1968 at Brisbane Festival Hall in Brisbane, QLD, Australia
* IWA World Tag Team Title: Dominic DeNucci & Mario Milano defeated Baron Scicluna & Cyclone Negro (Champions) on Disqualification

Thursday 1 August 1968 at Brisbane TV Taping in Brisbane, QLD, Australia
* Dominic DeNucci defeated Baron Scicluna on Disqualification

Friday 2 August 1968 at Sydney Stadium in Sydney, NSW, Australia
* Dominic DeNucci defeated Roy Heffernan

Saturday 3 August 1968 at Sydney TV Taping in Sydney, NSW, Australia
* Dominic DeNucci defeated Mark Anthony

Cheers!

Ed

The only time I see DeNucci & Sammartino facing Mortier & Tanaka close to this is Feb. 12, 1968 in Trenton.
