Big find courtesy of my friend Zach Carey. Highlights and interviews from Rick Martel's AWA title defense against Leo Burke in Halifax, Nova Scotia from 1984.
Been searching for some or part of this for years.

Wow, fucking rights khawk....I was at that match sitting a couple rows back from the side Martel entered at.

I remember me & you talking about this years ago at OSW....I haven't seen this for over 30 years....There was a time when I thought I had footage also on Beta tape but could never find it.

Tell him thank you, thank you, thank you.

I wonder if he has more footage of the '84 season of Al Zinck's return to promoting. ?..Would love to see some footage of Mark Lewin from earlier that season before the Cormier's came back & he was the top babyface.
This made my year lol....can't wait to show my Dad.

I'd ask in the comments thread there. Think someone already did but the more interest shown the better the chance if there is any more that it gets put up.
Sometimes there isn't any more but sometimes there is.

Does any footage exist of Terry Funk defending the NWA title against Burke when they wrestled in Halifax ?

I've never heard of any. That was the mid-70's and I don't know of a lot/any footage from that area exists given the time frame.

This was great! Leo Burke was over as hell, huge contrast to the couple of NWA on TBS shows he did around this time where the announcers never truly put over who he was or where he was from.

I've only seen a handful of Burke matches but he is always entertaining.
