Welcome to all WWWF fans. Today we will be celebrating and remembering the fabulous and rich history of the World Wide Wrestling Federation. It will be my pleasure to host the festivities today which will consist of twenty-five trivia questions designed to bring back a bunch of memories for you. And as we go we can certainly talk about your other favorite WWWF moments and things.
 
I have went back and forth on the rules a bit so let me clarify how things will play out.
 
I will be posing twenty-five WWWF trivia questions today covering the 1963-1983 timeframe. If you know the answer to the question please chime in. Each correct answer will score one point. Only the first person answering with the correct answer will be awarded the point. If nobody gets the answer within thirty minutes I will move onto the next question although the unanswered question is still fair game for everyone in terms of scoring. Once you have guessed at a question, you have already guessed. The person winning today (most points scored) will win a 1976 WWWF yearbook ~ the one that was sold at Madison Square Garden in early 1977.
 
With that being said - "Ladies and gentleman Promoter Phil Zacko proudly presents Championship Wrestling supervised by the State Athletic Commission. Howard McCall Commissioner, Frances Walker is the Executive Director and the officials assigned ~ Chief Deputy Commisioner In Charge Nick Santauro, the Doctor In Attendance At Ringside Dr George Zahorian, Timkeeper At The Bell Mike Mittman. The referees assigned for this hour of wrestling are Dick Woerhle and John Stanley. And my name is Joe McHugh. The opening contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit. In the corner to my left ...."

Question #1

1. The Iron Sheik was the man who eventually defeated Bob Backlund for the WWWF title in late 1983. This was a surprise to many as The Iron Sheik had made a bid for the title in 1979 and been beaten by Backlund. When The Iron Sheik arrived in 1979 he was known by a different name. What was that name?

Correct. PJ draws first blood.


2. Tarzan Tyler and Luke Graham are the first officially recognized WWWF tag team champions. Whom did they (supposedly) beat to win the title and where was this match at? Must get both parts of the question correct to score the points.
