Backlund pinned John Wisniski-Greg Valentine on October 19 1981. The referee dazed and shaken erroneously handed the WWF title to Valentine. It was a bogus title change. Backlund won it back the next month.

On the October card Backlund pinned Greg Valentine. The Referee took a bump and was dazed counted Valentine shoulders down, but thought Valentine was Backlund. The Ref gave Valentine the Title. The title was Held Up. Backlund won the "Held Up" title (only Held up in NYC) on the Nov's Card.

The title was given to Valentine in error in October. Backland won it outright the next month.

Baclund/Valentine match, ref gave the Hammer the belt by mistake after the pin. Title "change" never officially recognized.

Backlund pinned Valentine. Dumb ref was "dazed" and awarded Valentine title when Valentine put his arms up in victory.

I'm not on  here often enough to answer first, so my points suck.

My work schedule doesn't permit me to be here first as well. But that is OK, I am having fun, learning about wrestling.

An insult to the intelligence.

Didn't see it live, but read about it later and then later saw some cards from that era.  In hindsight, it felt like a cheap way to pop the house the following month at MSG.  Not sure they needed to do that.  Valentine was over as the young challenger though.
