For the love of Gordon Nelson, someone must know the answer to this...

Wilbur Snyder was advertised as one of the 18-men to be in the Cow Palace battle royal on January 22, 1972. He was also advertised to be the special referee at the Olympia in Detroit for a match between WWA World Tag Team Champions the Blackjacks and Dick the Bruiser & Sailor Art Thomas.

Is there a definitive list of the 18 entrants who took part in the battle royal? If not, maybe someone can help me work it out:

While results were printed in newspapers for both cards, Snyder is not referenced in either. At the Cow Palace, there were 17 men appearing in the undercard (Haystack Calhoun fought two men in a handicap match), so Snyder may have been the 18th man.

The results as printed in the San Francisco Chronicle:Kinji Shibuya & John Tolos beat Ricky Hunter & Paul DiamondEarl Maynard beat Don CarsonHandicap Match: Haystack Calhoun beat Billy Graham & Roger KirbyRay Stevens, Peter Maivia, Pepper Gomez & Rocky Johnson beat Ripper Collins, Pat Patterson, Paul DeMarco & Haru Sasaki (2-1)Ray Stevens won the 18-man Battle Royal

Advertised to appear were: Ray Stevens, Haystack Calhoun, Peter Maivia, Kinji Shibuya, Pepper Gomez, Rocky Johnson, Wilbur Snyder, Don Leo Jonathan, Ricky Hunter, Paul Diamond, Pat Patterson, Billy Graham, Paul DeMarco, Ripper Collins, Roger Kirby, John Tolos, The Sheik and Buddy Austin. The newspaper advert incorrectly billed Snyder as William Snyder, but the preview article on the day of the show listed the same 18 wrestlers with no spelling errors. Of the undercard, only the 8-man tag match was included in the advert, and no undercard matches were in the preview article.

Of those advertised, Wilbur Snyder, Don Leo Jonathan, The Sheik and Buddy Austin did not appear as one of the 17 men on the undercard, and Haru Sasaki, Earl Maynard and Don Carson did appear, although they were not advertised.

Here is a link to a 3:45 YouTube video of footage of the battle royal, including some of the introductions. Unfortunately there is no sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0eVLLLUpK4. Are any eagle-eyed board members able to identify who the 18th man in the ring was?
