Cool to see Verne teamed with and vs Whipper Watson, Gagne never got up here much (Ontario) till the late 70's, never as champ in Toronto anyways

Here are a few World Title clips from the Oshawa stuff

1948 Longson (would lose to Thesz 5 days later in Indy)





1956 Whipper



1960 O'Connor


1967 Kiniski

Great clips, as usual. Thanks for sharing.

I'm a little stumped though by the one above. Geeto & DeFazio as Int'l tag champs support it being April 72.  But April 24th was Monday that year, not Friday. Obviously the box ad is incorrect.

Can anybody confirm the correct day and/or date for this card?

Good catch on that incorrect date. The correct date for the card was April 21.

The corrected box ad:

Carlton, thanks for the Toronto Bruno stuff. A few observations.

I have Sammartino in Montreal on September 13, 1962 teaming with Enrique Torres going to a NC vs. John & Chris Tolos.

On the September 27, 1962 card, Bruno & Watson won the belts. 

November 1, 1962 was a TV taping day with Bruno beating Kangaroo Kennedy earlier.

The U.S. Title Match with Valentine on November 15 went to a DCOR in 23:21

On the November 22, 1962 card, Bruno beat JV to win the strap

Bruno & Kiniski lost the November 29 tag match to Brower & Valentine

December 6, 1962 saw Bruno & Watson retain the tag straps and finally on the December 27 card, Bruno beats Sakuro

yeah my mistake on a typo that first one is Sept 20

62/09/20 Att: 5,000
Lou Thesz DCNC Argentina Rocca 19:44
Bruno Sammartino W Bob Stanlee 4:14
Sweet Daddy Siki W Ray Gordon 21:04
Taro Sakuro W Timothy Geohagen 16:04
Enrique Torres W Angelo Savoldi 7:33
Stan Stasiak D Tony Marino 20:00
(Subs for Jim Hady)

the rest you have is correct on the 11/22 Bruno/Valentine -Brower comes out and tells referee that Valentine’s foot was on the ropes; ref says final decision will be up to the NWA -on the next card 12/06 Bobby Bruns comes out and affirms Bruno is the new US champ

Bruno also loses the belt on Dec 14 back to Valentine in 21.22 but I couldn't find a clip, I will check the Globe on my next visit

I believe I posted all of 1962 a ways back in this forum
