Next up we have the November 29, 1984 show in Portland. Here's the first ad that I found, which ran in the 11/25/84 Maine Sunday Telegram.

Two of the scans were too large to upload to the boards, so I've copied links from Facebook where I posted them on the group I run. Here's an article on the September 27, 1984 Portland Expo Building show that talks about the Savoldis running their own promotion, the matches on the show that night, and some other details.

IWWA grapples for corner of Maine ring, Portland Press Herald, 09/27/84.

Robbie Ellis D El Santana
Bruiser Brody D Colin Kidd

The match between The Tonga Kid and Tony Rumble from the June 5, 1985 tapings should actually be included as a part of the May 8, 1985 tapings. The disqualification comes from Kevin Sullivan and The Fallen Angel interfering in the match.


Kevin Sullivan and The Purple Haze are listed as having two matches against Tom Brandi and Chauncey Johnson on the December 28, 1985 tapings. I'm pretty sure this is an accident. One of the matches is actually Sullivan and the Haze against Chris Gallahad and Tom Brandi.
