I never worked with the Crusher but I did work with Dick the Bruiser, several times in St. Louis.I did not work for Dick in his territory so I do not know what kind of booker he was. They were both big stars and drew alot of money so I would think that would be a tie..
Jack, you are ever the diplomat! In regards to St. Louis, Crusher was never over while Bruiser was THE man at the box office.
I saw both your matches with Bruiser in 1974. The first one before that sellout crowd was my favorite--everyone was so excited about the house and you two put on a great show.
I think it's too bad both you and Terry Funk never got a clean win over Dick, your two matches ending in a DQ win for you and a double countout. Bruiser faced seven NWA kings in his 20 years in St. Louis and he put the other five over cleanly at least once.
