The card listed at the start of the thread for the South Gate Arena in LA is slightly incorrect. The preview article in the LA Times states that "Snyder has promised to meet the winner" of the tournament. He wasn't wrestling there on 10/5/54.
Tuesday, October 5, 1954 - Interstate Fairgrounds, Spokane, Washington
Don Moore drew Steve Netry
Elmer Davis beat Chet Wallick
Thor Hagen beat Dmitri Kontos
Danno McDonald beat Bill Melby (2-1)
Wilbur Snyder beat Bob Cummings (30:00+) (2-0)
This was Snyder's first appearance in Spokane. He was promoted as an international television star in previews, but there was never ever mention of the title.
