Okay, how many of you remember Brazil's run in the mid-70's? 

He teamed with SD Jones didn't he?  Were they in one of the fictitious tagteam tournaments? Was that for the belts stripped from the Executioners?  Were they in the finals? 

...Has 24/7 shown any Bobo matches from this time period. 

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.
