I'm pretty sure now that it was not Dick Afflis wrestling as the Bruiser in Abilene/Odessa in late 1958. That clipping from Abilene must be an error. The preview for the December 16 1958 Odessa card included this picture and billed Bruiser as European. This is clearly not Dick Afflis (any ideas on who this is?). The detailed Odessa results for this card match the picture, as his unique hairstyle was referred to in the report.
