As some of you may know, I work on the Indy scene in WI/MN/IL/IA areas. Last night I worked for MIAW in South Milwaukee, WI and the special guest for the show last night was Baron Von Raschke. While I knew The Baron was going to be there, I didn't know I would have the privilege of getting to do a spot with him. I was managing at ringside, typical chicken shit heeling, and when The Baron saw enough he applied the claw. I don't mark out for many guys, but The Baron was a class act. And if it wasn't wrestling hyperbol, it was his last appearance in the area.

Good job Vic. I will add this to Baron's career record. What capacity was he there as? Can you list the actual city and venue and the match participants, and what name you work under? It's nice to have more details than simply list "Baron Von Raschke appeared".


Jim Raschke is one of the good guys, but he is now 74 I think, so it could be him finishing up his remaining appearances and settling down. For 2013, I think he last worked the show the weekend of the Waterloo HOF this past July on the outside for a lumberjack match.

His son is making a film about BVR's life and career which is going to be great since Jim looks pretty much the same as he has since 1967, so he can insert himself into any scene.

The event was held in South Milwaukee, WI a suburb of Milwaukee. The venue was PaPa Luigi's. The match was Jack Spade w/ manager Vic "The Stick" Ross vs Matt Longtime. After seeing repeated interference by Vic Ross, The Baron applied the claw to Vic. This led to Longtime defeating Spade.

Sorry to write that in the third person, figured it would be easier to understand.
Beej I didn't blade, family show with lots of kids.

Legendary venue.  When Fred Kohler used to book Bruno Sammartino in Wisconsin, Sammartino insisted on that venue being booked, and in being paid in 4 large pies in addition to his normal rate.

Actually it's an entertainment complex that used to be a community center. On second thought, I like your version better.

They shot some footage last night for this project, but they spoke of it as if it were going to be a television production as opposed to a movie.

Was the Papa Luigi's show on the second floor? I looked at their website and figured it had to be in the gym area.

Hi Vic,

I just found out today that a few friends of mine were at the show and they actually took a plaster cast of the Baron's hand in the claw pose. They're supposed to be marketing "The Claw" real soon made up this way. Did you notice anything at all with that?
