Notes: The Montreal Star reported that 10 days earlier, Thesz was in Fairbanks, Alaska, where he wrestled Sandor Szabo. It was the only match on the bill, drew a $20,000 gate, and he personally earned $5,000. He was said to have arrived in Montreal from Houston and was called “the most-travelled (sic) fellow in the business.” While making his way to Quebec, Thesz lost his luggage, somewhere between Dallas and Toronto, it was said, and had to find replacement wrestling gear. After the bout, Carpentier was quoted as saying that he shouldn’t lose his title because of the DQ and that he “thought Thesz acted miserably.” There was some confusion in the local Montreal press if Thesz had regained the NWA championship or if Carpentier retained on the technicality. NWA President Sam Muchnick ruled on the situation, saying that because of the DQ, Carpentier retained his National Wrestling Alliance backing. Bruiser was also booked in Madison, Wisconsin that night against Wilbur Snyder. Boris Volkoff took Bruiser's placeand lost to Snyder.

Notes: According to the November 21, 1957 edition of the Indianapolis Star, “pro wrestling will unveil a new penalty method at the Armory tonight; The Indiana State Athletic Commission has granted matchmaker Dick Patton the right to give the penelty belt a trial run in tonight’s rematch [between Afflis and Snyder]; The belt can be applied in 30 seconds and is called into play when a contestant commits a major foul.

Once clamped into place, the belt restricts the offending matman to the use of only one arm. First infractions call for a one minute belt penalty.  Subsequent periods are for two and three minutes."
