Notes:
• I always thought Muraco clearly telegraphed his turn (which would come a few weeks later) when he said in his first interview in the territory that he would never turn his back on a friend.
• Jack Brisco points out that he and Jerry are happy that the Eastern finals are to be held in Charlotte becasue they won the qualifying tournament in Charlotte.
• Piper is excellent on color commentary.
• Mosca mentions that he and Kiler Kahn won the tournament in Montreal Quebec. Ole mentions that he and Stan Hanson has won two tournaments, one in Greensboro and the other in Atlanta.
• Jeez, Sarge wrestled super stiff in his match with Tony Anthony. Huge Johnny Valentine-like forarm smashes across the chest of Anthony and a brutal clothesline.
• Terry Taylor wears a very cool looking "Georgia Championship Wrestling" t-shirt in his interview.
• And speaking of t-shirts, Muraco has a funny one on that says "Patience, my ass. I'm gonna kill somebody."
