They've done barbed wire matches in Amarillo since the 60s and maybe the 50s.
Could have been a Doc Sarpolis created gimmick.

Some other ones I can recall happening during the kayfabe era in the States that have not been mentioned were in Memphis (early '80s),Florida (Funk vs. Dusty for one IIRC), I remember a Brody promo where he said he was going to string barbed wire around the ring for a match vs. Abby at the Omni (early '83), Brody vs. Gordy WCCW Texas Stadium show ('86). Also I think Southwest did some when the Sheepherders were there.
