Was this a surprise? I am thinking I was 10-11 at the time and only read about it in the Apter mags. I don't think Terry was even considered to be much a "contender" for the title.

Wasn't the story that Brisco was supposed to wrestler Dory Jr but Terry took his place? What was the story there?

I thought he beat Race for the title.  It was Harley's first run.  It was so long ago that I could be wrong.  Maybe TF did beat Brisco.

I googled it which is what I should have done first.  TF did beat Brisco.

It was a big surprise. Dory was scheduled against Brisco in a title match. Terry took his place when Dory did not arrive. Brisco had prepared for Dory then lost the Title to Terry. Built in excuse for Brisco. That's the kayfabe story.

In reality, Brisco didn't want to be the champion anymore. Dory Jr turned down another run as Champ. NWA President Fritz Von Erich cast the deciding vote to make Terry the champion. The storyline outlined above was created. The board reportedly was locked 3-3 between Terry Funk and Harley Race before Fritz made his choice.
