Hi All,
 
Was looking through some newsletters over at Prowrestlinghistory.com, and came across results for Australia 1978.   It lists results from September - December, but was wondering if anyone had results (or know somewhere online to research) they could share?
 
I imagine most of the locals competed throughout the year, but was curious as to all the overseas talent that made their way through.   Thanks!
