Unfortunately, like anything old-timey when it comes to Sports Entertainment, only about 0.5% of their audience would "get it".

I like it. Someone tweet at Christopher Guest immediately. 

Would be a good segment on "Drunk History" depending on who you got drunk to tell the story. :)

I guess my personal holy grail would be the first card I ever attended October 31, 1982.
Secondly, the NWA had a couple shows in 83 and I believe in 84 at Exhibition stadium, that I don’t even remember. Would love to see those.

Also on a side note, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is my favourite comedy of all time :)

So what moves to the top of video enthusiasts' lists now? Off the top of my head, I wonder about Backlund vs Bockwinkel from Toronto and July 4, 1982 Omni matches with Backlund vs. Flair Or what about those Thanksgiving tournaments where the Georgia tag belts would be vacated and outside teams would enter delivering some unique bracket pairings?

I watched WWF syndicated shows from St. Louis, and Larry Matysik would show clips of the house shows. I wonder how much was taped and if it was kept.

My own grail would be the AWA battle royal from the Rosemont Horizon in November of 1983 with Hogan, Andre, Bockwinkel, High Flyers, Patera and Blackwell, Dr. D, Saito, Baron, Superstar Graham, Otto Wanz....Brunzell won it.

2/11/79 Minneapolis.
Gagne and Brunzell defeat Tsuruta and Tenryu.
I have always been hopeful of film of this coming out at some point. The baba- bockwinkel main event was filmed (silent footage, no sound), so it's not unreasonable to hope the filler got the tag match as well.
Similarly, gagne vs flair film from their early AWA days. I used to trade with a guy that claimed he had this, and I believe he did as he came through with film of gagne vs brunzell before that, which many in the know claimed never happened.
More personal grails than common ones I suppose.

That has got to be at or near the top for me....I have wanted to see this match so bad ever since I first learned it happened. I still have that issue of 'The Wrestler' where Backlund is holding Flair upside down by the legs. I remember as a kid trying to play out in my mind how the match happened.

I would love to see Ricky Steamboat/Jay Youngblood vs Ric Flair/Greg Valentine from February 20 1983 in Greensboro NC. Two of the greatest teams ever. A dream match and likely the only time  they faced off. There is a good chance they have at least some of it. Also on the card was Slaughter/Kernodle vs The Funks.
