Seems natural he would but I have never seen results.

I think Lanza went back to work for Verne,teaming with Bobby Duncum. I don't know if he ever did a one off,but I never heard of Lanza being in Mid Atlantic.

Jack Lanza worked JCP from September to December of 1963 but never came back.

I found cards with him on them in Greensboro and Newport News until May of 1964, and then he apparently went back to Minneapolis. We had Lanza in Indy so long I never bothered to check out his early career too deeply. I never knew he ever worked in Mid Atlantic or for Roy Shire.

I think he worked in Tennessee in the early to mid 60s as "Joe Lanza".

I saw a pic in an old newspaper and it didn't appear to be Jack.The timeframe wouldn't work,either,IIRC.

Who'd Lanza have beef with? Mid Atlantic was one of the very best territories.

Not sure there was heat. George Scott just saw Mulligan as a solo act (his replacement for Johnny Valentine in fact). I don't think he was wrong. Mulligan's promos and his aura blew Lanza's away, though I think Lanza might've been a better worker at one point.

Am I the only one who when I saw Lanza (be it on tape after his career ended)didn't like a lot of the facial expressions he had? I thought he was a fine in ring worker and he usually had Heenan on the stick but like he'd do a lot of chokes and when he did the claw he always tried to do this crazed look that just came off as super awkward. Probably just me but that was where I think he and Mulligan differed when it came to "aura" or presentation.

Jack had a good deal with Verne, and only worked a light schedule for relatively the same money overall. Therefore,he was able to be home with his family more.
