Concert Hall Flyer 1982




Both sides of a flyer for a Dave 'Wildman' McKigney show in Toronto in 1982. The show went on a bit different from advertised, The Sheik took on Martinez while Denucci faced Killer Kowalski.

While Johnny Valiant did appear on Dave's shows in this era, Jimmy Valiant didn't. In fact Jimmy was starring at Tunney's MLG show down the road 2 days prior to this card taking on Ivan Koloff. The photos used were from the Valiant's days in Detroit some years earlier. Both appeared on lots of London area cards in the mid 1970's of which Dave had involvement.

Other than Johnny V, Danny Johnson and Ray Yarek, the other names on both sides had at one time worked Tunney's MLG shows. Frankie Laine was the most recent having wrestled on the Dec 27 1981 MLG card.
