I assume "Strimple" was an alligator?

Just found Bruiser's first Green Bay appearance, said to be his Wisconsin debut:

Green Bay (Labor Temple) Sunday, January 2, 1955 -

Dick Afflis beat Jack Wilson
    1-Afflis won with a series of body press, body slam and pin - 17 minutes.
    2-Afflis won after a piledriver - 13 minutes.


Afflis appeared again the following week:

Green Bay (Labor Temple) Sunday, January 9, 1955 -
   
Mike Blazer beat Dick Afflis
    1-Afflis won with a backdrop and shoulder press - 23 minutes.
    2-Blazer won with a reverse full nelson - 19 minutes.
    3-Afflis was disqualified for failing to break a hold (5-count) - 8:40.


I'd  have loved to have seen these matches.  30 minutes with Jack Wilson and 50-51 minutes against Blazer.  Had to be quite different than the 10-minute bouts we saw Bruiser in during his later years.

Scott Teal has this one with the newspaper add on one of the FB sites.

Promoter Pedro Martinez

Dick the Bruiser vs Bobo Brazil
Tolos Brothers vs Billy Red Lyons & Hercules Romero (Cortez)

There's also a story posted with the card where it says that Roy
Diamond is actually Nick Bockwinkel, son of Warren Bockwinkel.

I was aware that Heenan popped back to Indianapolis now and then after moving full time to the AWA, but it surprises me to see he worked this show. Was it common for Heenan to work WWA shows outside of Indinanapolis post 1974?

Heenan  wrote in his book that he never wrestled in the WWA for Bruiser after he first left but it's simply not true.

He came in once right after he left Atlanta and it looks like he took dates a few times around the Christmas holidays for Bruiser and the WWA. Heenan's Mom lived in Indianapolis so while visiting he worked a few dates.

Time to do some investigating. Added a note to the results. Thanks Badceo.

I'm thinking Heenan did a no-show or Bruiser false advertised him as there's not a finish listed just a match. Janesville has the result of a match.

December 27, 1980 was a Saturday and the drive between the towns is 3 1/2 hours if you follow the speed limit which most wrestlers most likely didn't. It's possible one show was a matinee and Heenan did a double shot.

Nice find.

I always thought that Super Clash at Comiskey was their last time as a team.
