I think I saw this when it aired.  It would have been 1975.   A couple of observations:

Rocca may be the worst announcer in history.  You simply cannot understand one word coming from his mouth.  At least I couldn't.

The workers hadn't perfected the chair shot yet.  You can see them pulling back. 

Did Albano have a cigar hanging out of his mouth the entire time?

Great match with awesome heat.   The guys are more athletic today but they are not put in positions to draw heat like that.

Some people do not like looking back and watching the old wrestling stuff.  It wasn't as good as they thought it was. I still enjoy iy and would take it over today's product, especially the storylines.  It is like a sick soap opera.  Even if the chair shots were pretty lame. ;)

Yeah, Rocca was the shits. Best part of any show he did was when he'd call Vince "General" and say he was going to take his shoes off and sit back and watch the match.

As for the match, I'm not seeing what others did. The stuff seems to be missing by a mile. It's like everyone was working down to DeNucci's level.

Yeah, it is comedic, but I like the pandemonium style better than this shock stuff you see today.  Loook at Albano himself.  He looked like one of the Three Stooges with the first haymaker he receives.  I don't know why, but I find it entertaining as hell.

Again, it was aired circa 1980 or 1981 for some reason or another on the main syndicated show.  I have to pull the tape as there is a reason why they aired it.  Who knows the real reason could have been that they were short of footage for the weekly syndicated show or something else.

The whole "production" wasn't "polished" like it is today and it had a certain charm to it.

these are the exact reasons I love it so much...the campy fun of it all and the carnival atmosphere....this match was a great brawl and I wish 24/7 would put it up in it's entirety in good quality (also the Valiants/DeNucci-Rivera title change bloodbath from Hamburg TV that happened a few months prior)
