September 1st 1972 Soldiers Field Cage Match!
In one corner, The Blackjacks. Mulligan at 310 lbs from Sweetwater Texas! Lanza at 275lbs from Albuquerque New Mexico, and The Manager, at 230 lbs from Beverly Hills California, "Pretty Boy" Bobby Heenan!
Their opponents, at 252 lbs, "The Wrestler who made Milwaukee Famous" The Crusher!
and weighing in at 259 lbs, from Reno Nevada, "The Worlds Most Dangerous Wrestler" Dick The Bruiser!
The third man in the ring, Heavyweight Boxing Champion "Jersey" Joe Wolcott Referee!
The epitome of Cage Matches! Promoter Bob Luce pulled off the venue need for this once in a lifetime card!
Yes, this was it, the match where Bobby Heenan was beaten so bad he was vomiting in the ring!
My friend Blackjack Mulligan told me on CPW Radio, the air was cold coming off of Lake Michigan because of the repairs going on at Soldiers Field.
This was priceless and remembered as the best cage match ever!
