I tried e-mailing cagematch.net and thehistoryofwwe.com but neither will put the match listing on. However, I found a newspaper article verifying that Hogan defeated Hercules in the main event of a show at the Ionia (MI) State Fair on 8/2/1986. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't forgotten in history.

I don't think Cawthon updates the site anymore.

Wow, that is very interesting. I do not have that in my listings for my Hulk Hogan match list.

They WWF wrestled at a lot of state fairs, but the information is sometimes hard to come by.

Odor31 could you let me know what newspaper the article was in/from or upload the clipping. Thanks

He's still selling books. Is he updating them?



Odor31, if you send me as many details as possible, I'll add the match to wrestlingdata.com.

Curious, did we ever see the clipping for this? 

It's interesting that Hogan worked Joe Louis Arena in Detroit on 8/1.

There are a few articles about the fair in the Lansing State Journal. All they say is that were was a "Hulk Hogan wrestling show" on that date at 7:30 p.m. with tickets at $13.50 and $16.50. No other wrestlers, or even the WWF, are mentioned at all.

I had one clipped at one time on my work computer. However, I have switched jobs since then. When I sign up for another free trial at Newspapers.com, I will clip it again. I had sent the clippings to the websites mentioned - I wish I still had those e-mails.
