According to onlineworldofwrestling.com it was on June 13 - 1973 in Tampa which does not match your listings. But they also list Jones beating Colt for the title on June 12 - 1972 so they are probably off on their dates.

Here's a list of all the Florida Champions but a lot of dates are not listed so it is probably not much help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NWA_Florida_Heavyweight_Championship

Even with all the clippings bunkhouse found, it's still hard to figure out. The Wiki list has some mistakes if you believe the newspaper clippings. Newspaper clippings aren't always right though so there is a margin of error in this sort of shit.

Re: The name game

Mark Starr, Mark Stone and Mark Strong are all the same guy.Newspapers just list his last name differently. Mark Starr was the name of said wrestler in other territories. I once heard he was the brother of Ricki Starr. Not sure if that is true.

Eric Von Stroheim, Karl Von Stroheim & Skull Von Stroheim are all the same wrestler. Newspapers just list his first name differently.

I thought Ricki Starr was English. He was definitely billed as being English when he was in Amarillo.

Re: The name game

Mark Starr, Mark Stone and Mark Strong are all the same guy.Newspapers just list his last name differently. Mark Starr was the name of said wrestler in other territories. I once heard he was the brother of Ricki Starr. Not sure if that is true.

Eric Von Stroheim, Karl Von Stroheim & Skull Von Stroheim are all the same wrestler. Newspapers just list his first name differently.


I thought Ricki Starr was English. He was definitely billed as being English when he was in Amarillo.



Starr is an American, real name Bernard Herman, who relocated to England. Apparently he was an actual ballet dancer, one of his nicknames was The American Ballet Dancer. From http://www.rickystarr.blogspot.com

The 8th part of "Foreigners fighting in France" is dedicated to American professional wrestler Ricki Starr, whose style was both surprising and original.Here then is a portrait of a most uncommon wrestler.


Real name Bernard Hermann, Ricki Starr was initially trained as a classical ballet dancer and reputedly worked with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, taking part in a triumphant tour of Europe in the early 1950s. However, he was also interested in contact sports and practiced boxing, a discipline in which he won numerous amateur titles.

Ricki Starr also accumulated numerous wrestling titles, after becoming a professional wrestler in 1953. Having enjoyed success on Broadway, it was at Madison Square Garden that Ricki Starr first really came to the attention of wrestling fans.

Recalling his early days as a ballet dancer, he took to the ring clad in ballet slippers and long white tights. There he pirouetted like a ballet dancer, practised his antics on his opponents, turning the match to the full extent of absurdity.

Thanks for all that, claw. Must have got about 100 new Dick Slater results for 1973.

I believe I got the date when I was browsing through CWF Archives and found the 12/25 Tampa program, which says "the (Florida) title Colt regained from Eddie Graham just eight days ago."

Anyone know who this "Mongol" was working Florida in July of 1973? El Mongol was still headlining in Atlanta on many of the same nights.
