This show did not air on WWE Classics on Demand! 

As with several other shows in the current sequence, this program did not air on WWE Classics on Demand. Speculation is that some of the original master tapes in the Crockett Promotions library were damaged or missing. There is always the chance that WWE decided not to air this show for some reason, but that seems highly unlikely.

Bob Caudle with Mid-Atlantic Champion Jack Brisco

Final Interview - Paul Jones, Jack Brisco, and Wahoo McDaniel. Jones says he has been spreading himself too thin, but says he is now back and concentrating solely on the Mid-Atlantic territory.


  • Classic old school finish in the Brisco/Jones tag match with a butterfly suplex by Brisco and the football tackle/indian deathlock sequence. Very 1975!
  • Bob Caudle introduces Nelson as "Sgt. Nelson" but Kernodle as "Pvt. Kernodle." I'm sure Noodle loved that! :-)
  • Excellent color commentary by Don Muraco during Wahoo's match. He says that Wahoo originally came to Hawaii looking for King Curtis because he was broke and wanted free tickets to the Don Ho Luau. When he couldn't find him, he heard Muraco was on the island and decided to look up his address and go to his house (overlooking the Ko Olina golf course) ask him to be his tag team partner in the NWA world tag team titles. So Muraco says he packs his clothes and takes his pregnant wife and brings her to "this lousy town" in the Mid-Atlantic area. But then Wahoo got interested in "shiny things" like the US title belt, and lost interest in pursuing the tag titles. All of a sudden Muraco says he is on the part of the card that says "…and three other matches." He's no longer in the main events and no longer making main event money. (Sounds like a shoot!) Says Wahoo didn't let him down, he just out and out lied to him. Mentions that the Funk Brothers were in the western division of the world tag team tournament. Throws a fit when Caudle calls him "Don." Wants to be called "Magnificent" Muraco.
  • Wahoo says he watches TV, and sees Muraco wrestling in other areas (Georgia) and glad he's making money. He understands, so Muraco should understand Wahoo's commitments with the U.S. title.
