Do you have any results from this group?  I'm watching a tape that has footage that aired in Summer '82 but it looks earlier, featuring Greg Valentine and Swede Hanson when I'm pretty sure they were working elsewhere.

Thanks!

I'll see what I can dig up. If I don't have any, I'm sure Vance Nevada does.

Who would have Supermouth Dave Drason been managing on these shows?

Just looked at Valentines career record, which only has these singles matches between Bravo and Valentine in Canada.

1979
03/25    Toronto, ON        beat Dino Bravo by DQ
04/08    Toronto, ON        beat Dino Bravo
                *Won the Canadian Heavyweight title
05/13    Toronto, ON        lost to Dino Bravo by DQ
06/03    Toronto, ON        lost to Dino Bravo
                *Lost the Canadian Heavyweight title

Vance has an impressive Canada archive so I doubt that further single matchup results are available.

Or who could have complenentary information?

Lou Thesz d.w. Crusher Cortez

Cortez must have been well respected for Lou to let him have a draw.

He managed El Santos I and II from what I remember. I saw "Superstars of Wrestling" in the late 70's on TV. Not the same stuff as the tape/dvd being watched in the original post, I don't think. The one I watched featured Denucci, Bravo, The Sheik, El Santos, Arion as a face, Waldo Von Erich...more I'm sure but can't remember off the top of my head.

Who were the two Santos and why were they wearing Halcon masks, anyway?

One of 'em from the time frame I watched was apparently Duncan Mactavish. Not sure about the other one.
The mask part, I have no idea.

Let's revive this thread with a clipping for a high school card in Grosse Pointe, MI 03/19/82. This is the first clipping I've ever seen for a wrestling card that came with an order form for tickets. From Grosse Pointe News, 03/11/82. I have the write-up on the show I'll post next.
