We all know the story about Vince Sr sending his son to Bangor, Maine to prove himself before bringing him into the WWF proper. Does anyone have the results of Vince Jr.’s first shows in the region?  Apologies if this has already been posted eons ago. I’d be curious in seeing pre-Vince and post-Vince, 3-6 shows in both directions to see what he changed and who he first pushed.

Probably far easier than typing results up but if you look at WrestlingData.com 1971 shows only 2 dates in Bangor. There may be some missing but 1972 lists 10 cards there.


I'd say poppa stopped sending wrestlers there when he realized whoever was in charge there was ripping him off.

Then junior went there and they were able to get back to regular business. History of WWE has the cards as well and may list a bit more info.

VKM definitely improved the advertising and used tv in Bangor. How much influence he had on who was in the cards I don't know. He may have been told who was coming and what the matches were and just promote that.
Ultimately he did well enough to impress pops as he was given the New England area next.
Nowhere yet have I been able to find any card that specifically says "promoted by Vincent K. McMahon.
1970 only lists maybe 5 cards do whoever was there wasn't busting his butt much to promote the area.
