I dunno. I can't think of anything significant that has happened on an Easter Sunday in wrestling. I imagine that territories ran shows though (it is still a Sunday, get the arena for cheaper rent, etc)

Just wondering what the Easter Sunday cards that were attempted looked like lineup-wise

4/7/85 Houston

Ric Flair vs. Kerry Von Erich, 60 minute draw
Rock N' Roll Express def. Midnight Express, Dirty White Boys & Freebirds (don't know which two) in an elimination tag team match
Terry Taylor def. Kamala, dq
Kevin Von Erich def. Chris Adams, dq
The Barbarian (John Nord) def. Butch Reed in a ghetto street fight
Hacksaw Duggan def. One Man Gang in a bounty match
Jake Roberts & Gino Hernandez def. The Fantastics
Brickhouse Brown def. Steve "Dr. Death" Williams, dq
Brad Armstrong def. Kevin Kelly
Brickhouse Brown def. Jack Victory

Chances are someone no-showed since Brickhouse Brown wrestled twice.
This was the "biggest card in Houston Wrestling history" and sold out the 9,000 seat Coliseum.
I got into a huge fight with my parents because I wanted to go and they didn't want me to, as I had family in from out of town. I'm curious as to how Flair was able to carry Von Erich for an hour.

Kinda odd seeing wrestling in Omaha on a Sunday.  Most all of the results I've seen (and the cards I attended there from 1970-73) were held mainly on Saturday with an occasional Friday night event.
