You just can’t talk about International Wrestling without  talking a bit about Superstars of Wrestling, its predecessor on Quebecer ground. I mentioned previously that  Superstars of  Wrestling   was  aired between 1980 and 1984 before IW would take its place.  The reason I mention that program is because Eddie Creatchman started chasing Dino Bravo’s International Title right  at the beginning of Varoussac Promotions’ programming.  Creatchman, in my opinion, is one of the best managers I’ve seen in wrestling. I couldn’t  tell  if  he  happened to manage on other territories than Montreal and Detroit (where he managed The Sheik and Abdullah the Butcher), but if not, he would have done a helluva job, because I believe  he was better than a lot of those guys who believed they were good managers but were not, in my book.  

My earliest memory of Eddie Creatchman goes back to 1982, when Dino Bravo was involved in a wild and brutal feud with The Masked Superstar, Bill Eadie. At the time, the WWF would come on Quebecer soil to promote some of its wrestlers on Superstars of Wrestling.  The Masked Superstar was managed back then by Lord Alfred Hayes, who was a well appreciated heel manager over here since he was able to speak convenient French. I remember a scheduled match between Bravo and Superstar where Bravo got manhandled like a dummy.  Superstar didn’t let him time enough to undress and attacked him from behind, bloodying him and applying his devastating Cobra Clutch on him. After the match, while Bravo was taken away from the ringside area, Superstar and Hayes, being interviewed, were interrupted by Eddy Creatchman, who offered Hayes to buy Superstar’s contract, since he was the only guy who had been able to beat up Bravo like he deserved to be. Hayes politely refused but promised  history would repeat itself  especially for Creatchman.

Eddie Creatchman also managed several teams on this territory, such as the one formed by Pierre “Mad Dog” Lefebvre and Frenchie Martin, who were headed for the International Tag Team Title, according to Creatchman.  But his main goal remained getting rid of Bravo—and any other French Canadian babyface who was over with the crowds.  More...
