Back to the Territories: Indianapolis
Running time: 1:35
Often overlooked due to the proximity to Verne Gagne’s AWA, Dick the Bruiser’s WWA saw huge talent pass through in the 1960s and 70s. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, WWA saw Bruiser hook up with his tag team “cousin” Crusher, a young manager named Bobby Hennan break in, a famous angle with football pro Alex Karras, and more that you probably didn’t attribute to Bruiser’s WWA.
Join host Jim Cornette and one of the stars of Bruiser’s territory, Baron Von Raschke, as we dig deep into the life and times of William Afflis, know to us all as Dick the Bruiser, and his WWA. Dick called the shots along with partner Wilbur Snyder, and crowned himself the territory’s champion. Are you gonna argue with the toughest wrestler ever about his booking decisions?!
Fire up the Delorean again and head back to another time and place as we speed back to Indiana years ago!
