In Bret Hart's book he mentions on page 41 that he made his "unofficial" debut on May 2nd 1978 in Saskatoon in a tag match with Paddy Ryan as his partner against Mr. Hito and Mr. Sakarada.

Now going through the Saskatoon results for 1978 I have his first appearance there here:

Wednesday March 29th, 1978, Saskatoon Arena, Saskatoon, SK
Leo Burke defeated Mad Dog Martel by count-out
George Wells & Jerry Morrow beat Norman Frederick Charles III & Cuban Assassin by DQ.
Kasavubu defeated Bob Boucher
Mr. Hito & Mr. Sakurada beat Hubert Gallant & Bret Hart
Alo Lelane wrestled Gord Ivey to a draw

Could this be is actual debut?

Does anyone have anything before this?

There was no actual card there on My 2nd, but the day after I have this:

Wednesday May 3rd, 1978, Saskatoon Arena, Saskatoon, SK
Leo Burke beat Norman Frederick Charles III
International Tag Champs Keith Hart & Hubert Gallant beat
Kasavubu & Gordon Ivey
Mr. Sakurada defeated Gama Singh
Dynamite Kid beat John Foley
Alo Lelani beat Bret Hart
