Hey Hey guys  caught this in a search , to answer a few questions on the video, I am Big Jim Hutchinson , (no relation to Ron)  and I did 2 tours of newfie with the Cannon crew. Was pretty confusing having Sailor as a face. I trained under The Love Brothers and Eric the Animal. Got my firstt TV shot  on CHCH Tunney tv    Against the Love bros and Nick de Carlo as a partner. Tunny asked where I was from.... I said Toronto....he said "i can't have a lumberjack from  TO...that's how I got Timmins as a home town..... If anyone has pics of that tour, please let me know  1975?

Hey, Jim, welcome to Kayfabe Memories!  Be sure to stop by the Maple Leaf Wrestling board & say hi, there are some knowledgeable old school fans around there who probably enjoyed seeing some of your work back in the 70s!  Some of them are photo & newspaper clipping collectors, so they might be able to help you out in finding archives of your work.  Plus Tim Gerrard, a former Tunney guy, posts pretty often, maybe you know him?

Jim, were these 2 different promotions?  Did you work with Von Shotz and Marino when they ran in the winter of 1976?

We had sailor White in Ala. (Ron Fuller's Southeastern promotion) asa heel--going by Moondog King at that time, managed by Louie Tillet. He was doing well--was there just a few weeks--but, there was a problem with his work visa, & he had to leave the U.S. & return to Canada, from what I was told back then.I saw him in action in Birmingham, Ala. twice back then in '82--he got good heat.

Apparently, Sailor White and Rene Goulet were a pretty hated tag team in 1974 in the IWE promotion in Japan.  They had a cage match against Billy Robinson and Mighty Inoue.  I had no idea about the Goulet/White team in Japan.  One match between Kimura and Kusatsu had White and Goulet interfering a lot from ringside.  Robinson finally comes in and throws White out of the ring so the match between Kimura and Kusatsu can continue.  This eventually leads to the grudge cage match later that night that I mentioned above.  

Here are the two matches and the date mentioned above:

5/26/74:  
Rusher Kimura vs. Great Kusatsu (IWA Title)  
Billy Robinson/Mighty Inoue vs. Rene Goulet/Sailor White (Cage Match)
