Blackjack Mulligan & Blackjack Lanza

Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

This match is about revenge and humiliation. Two of the top tag teams in the World in the early 70s were very similar in style. Dick the Bruiser and the Crusher had practically invented "hardcore" wrestling in the 70s. More comfortable swinging a chair than applying a hold, the "Cussin' Cousins" brawled and bled in front of sellout crowds all over the world. They were beloved in the Midwest where they won five AWA World tag team championships and six WWA tag team championships. 

They met their match when manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan brought the Blackjacks to the Midwest. The Blackjacks were just as rugged and just as vicious as Bruiser and Crusher. And most importantly, they were just as accomplished. They would win the WWE World tag team championship, the American tag team championship, and the Texas tag team championship. Both would have outstanding singles careers beyond their tag team. Blackjack Mulligan was a true giant, standing 6-foot-10 and weighing 335-pounds. The "smaller" Blackjack Lanza was 6-foot-4 and a solid 250 pounds.

What the Blackjacks had that Bruiser and Crusher didn't was Bobby Heenan in their corner.

When the Blackjacks beat Bruiser and Crusher for the WWA tag team championship, Bruiser and Crusher protested that it was due to Heenan's interference. Bruiser made the same claims when Bobby Heenan managed Baron Von Raschke to a WWA heavyweight title victory over Bruiser.

Bruiser and Crusher wanted more than just revenge. They wanted to humiliate Heenan the same way they felt that Heenan had them.

They challenged the Blackjacks and Heenan to a six-man tag team match. But instead of picking a typical heavyweight partner, Bruiser and Crusher selected midget star Little Bruiser as their partner.

The challenge enraged Heenan, furious over being mocked with a 4-foot 95-pound opponent.

Little Bruiser actually modeled his career after Dick the Bruiser. He created the same type mayhem with the same brawling style in the midget ranks.

The Heenan camp accepted the challenge with one ominous warning: If they caught Little Bruiser in the ring they end the joke by destroying him.

Battle of the Wildmen
Sheik & Sgt. Jacques Goulet
vs.
Dick the Bruiser & Sailor Art Thomas

Who was the wildest, most violent, most uncontrollable wrestler of all time?

Some say Dick the Bruiser. Some say the Sheik.

You can now judge for yourself when you see the two greatest brawlers of all time battle it out on opposite sides of a tag team match.

Both were innovators of the wild, "hardcore" style and both were among the greatest draws in the history of professional wrestling. 

Combined, the two probably spilled more opponents' blood than any other two wrestlers. 

Now, they have a chance to spill each others.

Bruiser teams with powerhouse Sailor Art Thomas. Thomas had one of the first bodybuilder physiques in wrestling. Even compared to today's physique standards, Thomas' body is phenomenal. 

Sheik teams with French Foreign Legion outcast Sgt. Jacques Goulet. Goulet is also known as WWE tag team champion and long-time WWE road agent Rene Goulet.

But the highlight of this encounter is Sheik and Dick the Bruiser finally laying their hands on each other.

vs.
Hacksaw Jim Duggan & Bruiser Bob Sweetan
(second by Colonel Buck Robley)

A rare match up between two of the most popular brawlers of all time.

Bruiser Brody was an international legend. It was arguable if he was a bigger star  in the United States or Japan. When the 300-pound Brody was involved, the match would be as likely to end up in the fifth row or the balcony as the ring. Mr. Unpredictable Dick Slater teams with Brody. Slater earned his nickname because of his varied style. Some matches Salter would go into the ring and wrestle a completely technical style. Other nights he would throw the rulebook out the window. Fans and opponents never didn't know which Slater would show up. On this night, the hunch is that he would street fight with the other three brawlers in the ring.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan was another super heavyweight who wasn't afraid to brawl and bleed. With his trademark 2x4 board and wide open style, Duggan was beloved in the WWE, WCW, and Mid-South. But he wasn't popular when started his career, and this is one of his first featured matches. Duggan's partner is a renown brawler in Texas, Louisiana, and the Central States, Bruiser Bob Sweetan. Sweetan was a wily ring veteran and the master of the piledriver.

This match is believed to be the only televised meeting between two legendary brawlers, Bruiser Brody and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

Tag Team War
Andre the Giant & Dick the Bruiser 
vs.
Ox Baker & Killer Karl Krupp

The World's Most Dangerous Wrestler teams with the 8th Wonder of the World to meet an irresistible force.

Legendary tough guy Dick he Bruiser teams with the 7-foot-4, 450-pound Andre the Giant.

The Bruiser and the World's largest wrestler face a couple of wrestlers set on making their reputation by beating them.

Ox Baker was a 6-foot-6, 325-pound monster that terrorized rings for 20 years. His feared heart punch laid numerous opponents out. His face was so scary, he later landed movie roles, including John Carpenter's Escape from New York.

Killer Karl Krupp was a dangerous German grappler and a master of the iron claw. Krupp injured many wrestlers with his claw, including hospitalizing Kevin Von Erich.

Mark Lewin came to the Detroit-Toronto area and shocked the entire wrestling world by upsetting the Sheik for the United States heavyweight championship. Lewin was a master of the sleeper hold and knew that this would be his biggest weapon going into the rematch. The Sheik would be at his most vicious best and would pull out all the stops in the rematch - even by the Sheik's standards.


Ox Baker Interview

Ox Baker wasn't just a  6-foot-6, 325-pound wrestler, he was a force of nature. 

Ox didn't go for cute one liners on his interviews, he went for terror.

With that bombastic voice and an unmatched intensity, Baker was popular not only in wrestling, but in movies and television shows.

In this interview, he send a chill down the spine of Macho Man Randy Savage, the entire Poffo family, and all their fans.



Sky Lo Lo
