Okay, how many of you remember Brazil's run in the mid-70's?
First live show I went to had an Executioners vs, Bobo & SD match on it in fall of '76.
Here are some key dates during the Executioners tag run;
5/11/76; The Executioners defeated WWWF Tag Team Champions Tony Parisi & Louis Cerdan to win the titles.
10/26/76: The Executioners were stripped of the belts following a title defense in Hamburg, PA against Chief Jay Strongbow & Billy White Wolf in which a third Executioner (Nikolai Volkoff) joined in attacking the challengers.
12/7/76 Philadelphia; Chief Jay Strongbow & Billy Whitewolf defeated the Executioners and Nikolai Volkoff & Tor Kamata in a three-team tournament to win the vacant WWWF Tag Team titles.
They did have some kind of "tournament" (fictitious I believe) when Strongbow & Whitewolf were stripped of the titles (due to Patera "ending" Whitewolf's career) in Aug.'77, but I don't think Bobo was involved.
24/7 has aired a Feb.'76 All Star Wrestling show that had Bobo vs. Hans Schroeder (Lou Albano causes trouble and attacks Bobo during the match), the Feb '76 MSG card (Bobo & Parisi vs. Blackwell & McGraw), and the Mar '76 MSG card (Bobo vs. Blackwell). During this timeframe he was billed as the "United States champion" but did not have a belt with him.
