I dont have any record of Inoki challenging Graham. Still one more BIG name out there.

Can anyone verify Monsoon vs Backlund? I dont have that one as happening.

If it's Koloff, then I already mentioned him in my initial post in this thread.

There's another big name (former World champion) out there that wrestled both Backlund and Graham. So there's another bonus point to be had. It isn't Koloff.

I was going to say Brisco a few hours ago, but I couldn't confirm it by finding the results. Can you post the card?

Cool thanks for posting that. Here's what Graham C.'s site has for that card lol.

Orlando, FL - October 29, 1978
Ali Bey defeated Raul Mata
Prince Tonga defeated Pete Austin
Rocky Johnson & Jim Garvin defeated Mr. Fuji & Mr. Saito via disqualification
Dusty Rhodes defeated Bobby Duncum in a bunkhouse match
WWWF World Champion Bob Backlund fought NWA World Champion Harley Race to a draw


So can you post the scoring tally for this question and the updated standings?

El Olympico chimed in first with three correct answers scoring the four points. He also scores two bonus points, six total. 

PJ was second and scored three points for his efforts but didn't add any new names to the mix so no bonus points.

Carpetbeggar continued his surge being third with three correct answers (worth two points) and then just flatout out-worked everybody and scored five additional bonus points with Koloff, Dusty, Muraco, Kobayshi and Sekaguchi to total seven for the round and leap-frogging him from fourth to second place.

DC scoring one point for being fourth to chime in and scored a bonus point for Monsoon.

I didn't add the point to El Olympico for the Brisco guess as Carpetbeggar pointed out that they might not have actually faced each other in the end. My hunch is they did unless you buy into that in October 1978 (Race was the NWA Champion) that there was a WWWF vs NWA double title match completely forgotten by history. But let me see what I can find further on that one.


The standings with a week to go 

 El Olympico 50
Carpetbeggar 34
Srossi 30
Lobo 27
DCSoulchild 19
FreebirdsForever 12
One Fan Gang 11
Sin 9
PJ 7
DogFacedGremlin 4
WongLee 4

What if I can prove that they both wrestled Jimmy Valiant and Raymond Rogeau. Would you give me two more bonus points? ;)
