On the show Cole says Howard Finkel was going to be the ring announcer at Shea. However a working agreement with JCP Finkel was doing the announceing at a JCP card in Buffalo NY.


Anyone know if this card was really held?

It's possible, Buffalo had Mid-Atlantic's TV show until about '82 or so.

Don't have results for an 8/9/80 Buffalo card but JCP did run Toronto the next night.

Was Buffalo officially a MLW/Tunney city?

From mid 1980 through the spring of 1982, Buffalo was a Maple Leaf/JCP town. The cards mixed JCP guys with some of the Ontario locals who worked underneath on the Toronto shows. However the Buffalo shows didn't feature the guest shots by WWF and AWA guys like the Maple Leaf Gardens shows. I assume that it was the Toronto TV show that was used to promote the Buffalo cards and not JCP's TV.

more than likely , know that Tunney put on his first two shows in Aug/Sept and was fairly successful with over 8000 fans,  never have come upon the results though

Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling, was the show they aired, they ran promos on it for the Buffalo shows, as well as some for Toronto.
