Nice clippings. Are you sure about the year of the first Melbourne clipping? Considering the talent and titles involved, it seems more likely to have been 1977.

Thanks, El Olympico for the Omaha clippings.  I was there for the ones from Nov 1970 on.

The two that have THE CLAW listed do not have the correct picture of him in either clip!  The first one (Feb 6th) looks like "The Avenger" with Art Neilsen under the mask.  The other one (July 10th) is not anyone that I recognize.  Maybe one of the other guys here can identify whose picture that is.

The Feb. 6 card looks like the odd build of Jungle Jim Starr.

when did Omaha shut down as a separate promotion?

I know they were still active in April/May of 1973.  I think they lost their TV time sometime after that and relied on the main AWA office to promote shows there in the mid 70's.
