Any idea who The Mongol was in mid-1973? I don't think it was El Mongol as he was working many of the same dates in Georgia.

Looks like it was Tito Montez
The Rugged Russian and the Mighty Mongol – The masked Russian (Pedro Godoy) came into the Gulf Coast as a singles wrestler. Unable to win the Gulf Coast title, he brought in the Mighty Mongol (Tito Montez) to be his partner. The two held the United States tag titles briefly. After the departure of the Russian, the Mongol had a good run as the Gulf Coast champion.

The Mighty Mongol in Gulf Coast was not Tito Montez. He was Ed Sullivan who wrestled under that name in Calgary and WWWF. Tito Montez wrestled under the name Ed Sullivan very early in his career. I guess that is where the confusion started. Mighty Mongol/Ed Sullivan also wrestled in Florida in 1973 as Big Jim Slade with “Brother” Blackjack Slade. Not sure if he was The Mongol in Florida in 73

Tito Montez also wrestled as Eddie Sullivan in Pacific Northwest to add a little more confusion

Here is the lineup from a newspaper ad a few days before the card:

Kevin Sullivan vs. Dory Funk Jr. in a barbed wire match
Ed Gantner and Bugsy McGraw vs. The Sheepherders in a bunkhouse match
Mike Rotundo vs. Mike Graham
Jimmy Valiant, Ron Simmons, and Scott Hall vs. Manny Fernandez, Ivan Koloff, and Vladimir Petrov
Ron Garvin vs. The Tahitian Prince
plus 4 other matches

Clearly the card got rebooked. Today fans buy tickets without even knowing any matches by the time the date of card arrives. In 1987 fans were told what they were getting and didn't react well to having things radically switched up in the sense that people would feel ripped off and less likely to buy tickets the next time because they figured the promoted matches might not happen.

7/24/87 St. Petersburg, FL @ Bayfront Center
Blackjack Mulligan & Kevin Sullivan beat Dory Funk, Jr. & Oliver Humperdink in a lights out, Texas barbed wire cage match
Ed Gantner & Bugsy McGraw beat The Sheepherders by DQ in a bunkhouse match
Mike Rotundo beat Black Assassin
Ronnie Garvin beat Incubus
Steve Keirn beat Mr. Marvelous
Manny Fernandez & Ivan Koloff beat Jimmy Valiant & Ron Simmons
Scott Hall beat Bob Cook
Cuban Connection beat Jim Backlund & Jerry Grey
Lazertron beat Nelson Royal
Bill Mulkey beat Rick Rider

As an addendum to the above, by a day before the card, the ad had been redone to reflect a card much closer to the one that took place. The only difference was the six man tag was still promoted as originally slated to occur. I am pretty sure this is when Al Blake/Vladimir Petrov had to go to prison on drug charges and very abruptly disappeared from the greater JCP scene. It was still odd and sloppy though.
