Not sure if match times interest anyone but I have a few to add from some MSG results I have.  Whoever kept the notes in the arena lineup/program was thorough, including intro'd weights, substitutions, times of falls etc.

w/Antonino Rocca W Great Antonio & Pampero Firpo

1-Rocca beat Firpo 5:52
2-Bruno beat Antonio 4:00

October 24, 1960 - New York City, NY - Madison Square Garden

L/DQ Antonino Rocca

Thanks OFG. There's a good thread going on about Bruno that Yohe started over in the Thez forum at WCMB. I've been updating it with my Bruno stuff and these odds and ends you guys are throwing in are awesome.

While researching Dick The Bruiser, I'm sure I'll run in to Bruno during the early 60s. They never wrestled against each other but did appear on the same card from time to time. If I find anything "new", I'll post it here. Great thread BTW.

I got Bruno doing a TV taping in Pittsburgh that day. This could be entirely possible as 6/3/61 was a Saturday and they taped the TV in the morning. Cincy is a hop, skip and a jump from Pittsburgh by car I believe.

June 3, 1961 - Pittsburgh, PA (TV)

This is a good one. It's very difficult to get his first year stuff.

Thanks for the other updates claw

Updated the first page with this stuff.

Came across that Reading result while researching John Tolos. He was billed as "The Great Bruno".

The full card promoted by Ray Fabiani:

John & Chris Tolos vs Argentina Zuma & Chief Big Heart

The Great Bruno vs Miguel Torres

Swede Hanson vs Bobby Steele

Kenny Ackles vs Tony Altomare

Tony Milano vs Mr. Puerto Rico

Here are a couple more that I came up with, some are just additions to dates you have already:

2/17/60  YMCA, Middletown, NY  Bruno in feature match.

8/3/60  Riverview Field, Poughkeepsie, NY  Bruno vs Pampero Firpo

9/7/60  Riverview Field, Poughkeepsie, NY  Bruno & Tony Marino vs Dr. Jerry Graham & Waldo Von Erich

9/14/60  Avalon Rollerdome, Newburgh, NY  Bruno & Argentina Rocca vs Pat Kelly & The Great Antonio

I have a clipping for 9/6/61 at Riverview Field, Poughkeepsie, NY that lists Bruno vs Tommy O'Toole. I see you have that date listed, with Bruno's opponent as Tony Altomare.  I couldn't find anything else on this one.
