(Indianapolis) WWA Title Question

Post by Bushinyou » 2007/01/08 Mon 8:28 pm

3/12/65 Indianapolis Fairgrounds Coliseum
WWA heavyweight title
Johnny Valentine beat (c) Dick The Bruiser dq when Dick laid out Valentine, refs Johnny Shorn and Wayne Tate before 7 wrestlers and 6 police officers entered the ring to stop the carnage. Valentine was taken to General hospital for Xrays, stitches and treatment for a knot on his head. The WWA title was held up because of Dick's actions.
Wilbur Snyder beat Angelo Poffo 2/3
Nicoli & Boris Volkoff beat Joe Blanchard and Joe Brunetti 2/3
The Mongol beat Guy Mitchell
Bobby Managoff drew Moose Cholak 20:00
Cora Combs beat Barbara Galento
att: 5,000



The title is not listed as being held-up. Was it only held-up in Indianapolis? It appears that way, but I feel like Bruiser should be listed with another title reign, or have a footnote for this card at the very least.
