That was a Capitol Card. They ran Alexandria, Manassas, and even Richmond for a short while, believe it or not.

Found a clipping in the Montreal Gazette

October 2, 1973- Montreal, Quebec
Montreal Forum
Bruno Sammartino and Edouard Carpentier (Grand Prix Tag Team Champions) vs. Wladek "Killer" Kowalski and Gilles "The Fish Poisson" 2-3 falls

I read somewhere that Kowalski and Poisson won by forfeit so I am not sure if Bruno appeared.

I went through the record book and came up with the total of about 2550 matches he wrestled in his career. I may have miscounted a few here and there or there also may be some that were not recorded or documented.

Thanks Matt. I've never seen that North American title listed anywhere as one of Bruno's straps. As we all know, considering the length of his career, Bruno held relatively few titles.

On the 3/4/78 show Bruno no-showed and Dom DeNucci subbed for him. DeNucci and Snyder then beat The Valiants for the WWA title that night. I remember this card because a few friends and I made the trip from Chicago and were disappointed in the match change.


I may have missed it going through your matches here but do you have any listings of Bruno meeting Dick the Bruiser way back in the late 50's or early 60's?
The reason I ask is that because in an old Wrestling Life mag there's a story done by Bob Luce where he states they met in Michigan when Bruno was first starting out.

Rich, I don't have any listings with Bruno vs Dick the Bruiser, but my research is ongoing, and if I find anything, I will post it here.

Thanks for the info on the 3/4/78 card. I couldn't find a follow up article with the results.
