I'm heading down to obtain a FOIA subpoena to present to Vince so I can get the exact dates and provide the exact answers to this question. I wouldn't want to put in a guy who got a title shot in the WWF on March 15 if they didn't become the WWF until March 17. That would ruin the integrity of the thread.

Obama isn't respecting any FOIA requests. And Jericho tried the Library of Congress under Bush and came up empty. Further proof that all government officials are working in concert to deprive the American public of vital information like this.

Did Larry Zbyszko ever have a shot at the NWA Title?

I know that Terry Funk didn't get a WWF Title shot until '85, so he doesn't work here. But did he get a title shot in the AWA? I know he worked Pro Wrestling USA and I would figure with all of those matches in Memphis he should have gotten a shot at some point.

Where I'm going is that Funk would have gotten World Title shots in basically every promotion he ever wrestled, including Japan. I can't count TNA because when he wrestled there, they used the NWA Title. I would imagine there are a ton of guys that we're missing that would qualify under this being that in the '60s and '70s the guys would all travel from spot to spot.
