When was the last time the AWA, WWF and NWA World Titles defended in Puerto Rico and was the AWA and WWF ever defended there in the first place?

The Bruno Record Book shows him in Puerto Rico on February 14, 1965 against Ed Castillio with  rematchs held on March 14 and March 27. It also shows Bruno down there again on May 8 and May 9, 1965 but doesn't list any opponent.

Of course an argument can be made that every time Bruno and Morales defended the title in the New York City area in the late 60's and early 70's they were in effect defending the title in Puerto Rico but I digress.

Flair defended the NWA Title in Puerto Rico. Hammer To Fall might have some listings.

I don't recall the AWA Champion ever defending the strap in Puerto Rico.

Kinda off topic, but Claw, did Verne Gagne travel much outside the actual AWA territory to defend the AWA World Title when he was champ?

Not nearly as much as Bockwinkel but Verne did defend the strap in Amarillo, NYC and Florida. Gagne also had a talent sharing agreement with Bob Geigel. Gagne and Geigel would combine for shows and Verne occasionally wrestled on Geigel's cards.

Verne also defended the AWA Title in Japan.

I didn't mention Hawaii or Nebraska because both places were affiliated with the AWA when Verne defended the AWA Title there. Verne defended the belt in San Antonio once and in Tulsa once that I'm aware of.

What about Houston? What year did Bock buy into that territory?
