Bruiser Hurls Chair At Eric; Halt Mat Bout

Chicago Tribune – October 18, 1958

Boris and Nicoli Volkoff held Verne Gagne and Edouard Carpentier to a draw in the featured tag match in the wrestling show Friday night in the Amphitheater in the stock yards. But it was a mere warmup for what followed.

Dick the Bruiser Afflis and Yukon Eric engaged in a furious tussle that was called to a halt after the Bruiser had hit Eric with a ring turnbuckle and two chairs. Referee Andy Scott called it no contest.

The 5,053 spectators, who paid a gate of $13,325, booed the Bruiser’s tactics. Other results:

Wilbur Snyder threw Ivan the Terrible, 4:40; Bobo Brazil threw Legs Langevin, :45; Don and Jack Fargo beat Ray Schaefer and Roy McClarity in 27:10 in tag match; Ricki Starr threw Ned Taylor, 5:50.
