From Grosse Pointe News 03/25/82. I had to clip the article into 3 separate JPG images since the GPN papers are stored in PDF format. This is the headline with a few photos, and as you can see, it made the front page of the sports section!

The third picture from the 03/19/82 Grosse Pointe Superstars card, as run in the 03/25/82 Grosse Pointe News. Greg "Great Wojo" Wojciechowski started his grandstand challenge to any fan to wrestle him here, and Greg would continue this challenge when he worked for Dick the Bruiser's WWA promotion.

Once again, I've found slightly different results for a Superstars show in an issue of Tom Burke's GWNS. This time, it's the CNE Coliseum card that George Cannon promoted on 06/06/76. I also clipped the ad for the show juxtaposed with the Tunney card at MLG just to show the difference in lineups.

Superstars of Wrestling @ CNE Coliseum
Toronto, ON
June 6, 1976
Start time: 07:30 PM

Canadian Heavyweight Champion Tony Parisi DCO Eric the Red
Luis Martinez DDQ Wild Bull Curry
Fred Curry (sub: Gino Brito-see clip below) & Don Serrano D Hartford Love & Beautiful Bruce Swayze by DQ
Lou Thesz D Crusher Cortez
The McGuire Twins D The Executioners (not the WWWF ones)
Danny War Cloud & Billy Eagle D Bob Steele & Jim Hutchinson
Hagar the Horrible DW Zimba Khan
Pepe DePasquale DW Frenchy Martin (not the same one)

Advance tickets for show sold at Eaton's Stores

I found a clip for the 05/27/80 Superstars card at the St. John's Memorial Stadium in an issue of Tom Burke's GWNS. The clip supplier wrote the results next to the wrestler' names, as you'll see. Some title history uncovered here, as the Canadian Heavyweight Title was up for grabs between Don Kent and Luis Martinez, with Kent winning the match and the belt.

A few more Cannon Superstars results (covering the summer of 1980) from Tom Burke's GWNS. Clawmaster (RIP) shared the lineups for these at the beginning of the thread.

Superstars @ Memorial Stadium
St. John's, NL
June 10, 1980

Luis Martinez D Canadian Heavyweight Champion Don Kent in a strap match (Canadian Heavyweight Title not on line)
George Cannon D Haystacks Calhoun by DQ
Bob DellaSerra D Hartford Love
Louis Laurence D The Hungarian Wolfman
Chief Bobby Whitefeather D Pancho Ferraro

Superstars @ Memorial Stadium
St. John's, NL
July 08, 1980

George the Animal Steele D Canadian Heavyweight Champion Luis Martinez in a Loser-leaves-town match to win the title
Hartford Love D Bob DellaSerra in a cage match
Dark Angel & Tom Thumb D Dan Ferris & Sky Low Low
Dark Angel DW Dan Ferris
No result for Louis Laurence vs. Haystacks Calhoun

I have this clip for the 07/22/80 St. John's card from an issue of Terry Justice's TNT Times. The date on the ad was incorrectly listed as 07/08/80, so Terry included a note on the correct date.

Last clip for the night is a cool one advertising the June 1980 schedule for Cannon's Superstars in Newfoundland. The roster is also listed with some headshots of Don Kent, George Cannon, Hartford Love, and George the Animal Steele.
