• ON THIS DAY IN WRESTLING HISTORY (December 19, 1987) – CWA Event (Europe) feat. André The Giant
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on December 19, 1987, Otto Wanz’s Catch Wrestling Association held an event at the Stadthalle in Bremen, Germany.
“The Eighth Wonder of the World” André the Giant was still under World Wrestling Federation contract at that time, when he wrestled former AWA World Champion Otto Wanz in the main event of this European show.
Actually André was feuding with WWF Champion Hulk Hogan at that time, which makes his appearance here even more surprising.
Here is the card:
Steve Wright vs. John Quinn
Mile Zrno vs. Masahiro Chono
Billy Samson vs. Baron von Raschke
Tony St. Clair vs. David Taylor
Catch Cup Bremen 1987 Final: Bull Power (Vader) vs. Rambo
Eddy Steinblock, Hans Roocks & Herkules Boyd vs. Butcher Mason, Indio Guajaro & John Harris
CWA World Heavyweight Title: Otto Wanz (c) vs. Andre The Giant
