The Destroyers 1983

The Destroyers appeared on the Wildman's 1983 Summer tour as the Tag Champs. McKigney had advertised them with an old pic of the Kelly Twins with masks pasted over their faces but not sure if this was them 

Pics are from Cornwall July 1983 vs Ricky Johnson and Bobo Brazil

Andre vs Hulk 1981

When the WWF came in to Toronto in 1984, a big result of the resurgence of the area was based on the popularity of Hulk Hogan. Hogan had only made one appearance in Toronto previous to 1984 in a bout during his feud with Andre that culminated at the Aug 9 1980 Shea Stadium show and continued around the horn.

At this time Hogan was a monster heel type and it was evident he would go on to be a major force in the wrestling world but on this occasion he would be pinned by Andre, his next appearance was in Aug 1984 as WWF champ beating long time area regular Greg Valentine.
