Bob Backlund beat Toru Tanaka
(Backlund subbed for Mike McCord, who was supposed to challenge for Tanaka’s Georgia Heavyweight Title)
US Tag Team Title Match
Dick Slater & Bob Orton Jr (c) no contest Dusty Rhodes & Bobby Duncum
Jerry Brisco beat Nikolai Volkoff dq
Tony Garea & Dean Ho beat Ron Garvin & Mr. Fuji
Les Thornton drew Rick Martel (sub Bob Backlund)

So I take it that Backlund won not by pinfall or submission?  I don't recall him ever winning the GA Belt.
I know he won the Western States in '74 (The Funks put him over) and Missouri in 1976 (beating Race and losing to Brisco).
