G’day Brute,

Excellent research, mate!

Great contributions from One Fan Gang, Ron and Andyo, too.

Also cool to see Bull Curry’s Australian results from 10, 17 and 24 November 1967.

Curry only made one tour of Australia for the World Championship Wrestling promotion of Jim Barnett and Johnny Doyle.

Bull made his Australian debut on 8 November 1967, which was only three weeks before the end of the 1967 wrestling season. Most overseas wrestlers in that era worked in Australia for approximately three months - unless they were special attractions like Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, women wrestlers or midget wrestlers, or NWA World Champions like Jack Brisco and Harley Race.

Curry’s 1967 tour Down Under was very brief (only those final three weeks) in duration but it included 19 wild matches in 21 days!

Here are the results:

Wednesday 8 November 1967 at Brisbane Festival Hall in Brisbane, Queensland (QLD), Australia
