Did Mad Dog Vachon ever do any TV tapings for the WWF? I don't remember him being on TV that year -- until he showed up at his brother's wedding on TNT.

He did do some but not sure if they were before the Wedding.  I believe this was his WWF debut. It was less than a week before he was booked on the AWA St. Paul card with the Battleroyal/Blackwell turn.
He didn't wrestle but was there, they announced some contractual stuff (quasi-shoot type of talk over the ring mic) and Dog made it about halfway to the ring before being taken back to the back by security and police. Steve O subbed in for Dog and got squashed by Bruiser Brody. That was the last Dog was seen in the AWA until he came back for some Winnipeg-only stuff in 1985.

He had a TV spot in Canada called "Brunch with Mad Dog" where he interviewed various Superstars, and has a few squash matches from that time frame on tape.

Mad Dog was at MSG back in 74, but as for TV tapings in 1984 he made his debut one day before the 6-16-84 MSG show.
A TV taping at the Kiel Auditorium on 6-15, taking on Lanny Kean for Superstars of Wrestling (airing on 7-7-84)
He also wrestled on the 9-01-84 Maple Leaf Wrestling TV show.

Mad Dog mainly worked the Midwest cards in AWA country. Past his first few months, his presence on WWF TV and cards outside that region was virtually non existent barring an odd exception such as him being in Piper's Pit in late 1985 and a Montreal show that was his WWF swan song in early 1986.

What a fantastic card. Thanks so much for posting WC.

Interesting that Muraco vs. Garea was the curtain jerker. Basically a glorified squash.

After the opener they gave a ten bell salute to Vince the Elder but it wasn't mentioned whatsoever by Gene Mean and Monsoon. Very bizarre.

Steele vs. Jose Luis Rivera was just a straight up squash.

Heel vs. newly minted faces tag team title match with Murdoch & Adonis vs. the Samoans and 2 out of 3 falls no less. They seemed to be trying to turn the Samoans since it was supposedly Albano's fault they lost the belt. Some good old fashioned casual racism when the Samoans won't sell any shots to the head. Afa had a ton of unprotected head butts where he hit the mat first ala Chris Benoit but yet he never went on to kill Roman Reigns. I guess Kevin Sullivan really did do it after all. The second fall seemed to get really stiff after Dickie got cute.

The WWF's favorite colored guy S.D. Jones vs. the greatest politician Minnesota has ever produced, Navy SEAL, the leftest Alex Jones, the one and done against Bobby, his resume is endless. Jesse won in a racially charged decision.

Next was Chico against Johnny Fargo for the IC belt. Tito's mother was introduced but he didn't have a heart attack in front of her. There was a potentially nasty spot where Tito accidentally slipped through the ropes and Greg was able to protect him by hanging on for dear life. By Jove could these two guys work. A 5 star match (but not 6 star because it wasn't New Japan). Chico disappoints his mom by being COR.

Geraldine Crawford gets called to the security office by the Fink. The scoreboard also showed Michael Jackson, Judas Priest, and Joel Billy playing the Garden that summer. An in pain Tito is interviewed by Lord Alfred Hayes. Tito keeps calling Hayes "Lord" which even made me uncomfortable. There was no mention of the size of Alfred's cock.

Andre the Giant vs. the greatest redneck the United States has ever produced is next. John Stossel is nowhere in sight so Schultz only had Andre to handle. Andre refrained from having a bowel movement during the match. That's about the best thing I can say about this match.

Mad Dog Vachon vs. noted homosexual Steve Lombardi. Gene Mean calls him a good looking man which makes him gay too. Maurice is a youthful 78 years old here. On the plus side he still has both legs.Total squash.

Sal Bellomo vs. Mr. 1derful. Fink introduces Sal's two brothers from Sicily in the audience. This version of Orndorff has two fully developed arms. He kicks the living shit out of Sal. Orndorff's piledriver didn't look too safe.

I'm going to watch the rest tomorrow and let you guys know what happened.

Why the hell didn't they ever put this up on 24/7? I've got the May and July shows.

Ok now for the last part.

Cowboys vs. Indians. Bob Orton vs. the Italian Indian. Orton did not try to start the match by shitting on the Chief's headdress. Strongbow does better baseball slides than Maury Wills. Gorilla and Mean Gene have a massive hardon for the ref for some bizarre reason. Scarpa actually worked hard here. He tried to Hulk Up with the war dance but Bob beats him with a Vader Bomb. They went around and around the horn in "A" "B" and "C" markets with this match with the same finish.

Egbert LaRose is wanted by security according to the Fink. Fink then announces the next card at the Garden. Surprising that they changed their system over from the late 70's and early 80's when tickets for the next month used to go on sale right then and there.

Boot Camp Match is last. This is extremely rare for the Garden to have the main event on last. Like most fans my age, I think I have seen every big match out there that's available. I have never seen this match.

Terry Daniels exhibiting Stolen Valor comes out before the Sarge. Vince was brilliant keeping Hogan off this card because the crowd is absolutely insane for this match. Non stop action from bell to bell. I think Slaughter probably holds the record for shedding the largest volume of blood plasma at the Garden. Khos just bumped his ass off. This match was every bit as good as everyone said it was and I would put it in the top 5 MSG matches of all time.

Thanks again to WC for posting this pro wres fighting goodness.

A great drinking game is to take a shot every time Gorilla bashes the ref.  He's absolutely brutal towards refs (including his son) on all his house show commentary.  Aside from the fact that it makes no sense to put the heat on the ref instead of the heel (especially when the ref really isn't doing anything wrong), Gorilla gets super mean-spirited at times well beyond working.  Maybe it was some inside joke I never got, but it was bizarre.  He didn't do it on TV really, just on the house shows.
