Notes from Larry Matysik: This was the first July house show since at least the 1950s. Sam Muchnick liked to take a summer vacation to help rest the fans and build anticipation for what was originally a “new season.” There was, however, still the necessity of producing “Wrestling at the Chase” ever weekend for television. The summer tv cards had become weak in the late 1960s before the concept of using a month or so of out-oftown programs began. That helped for a change-of-pace, but still a few weeks of St. Louis shows were needed to get rolling with specific booking for St. Louis in August. Muchnick agreed with the idea that adding a July card would bring in big names that could also be used for the television tapings. Economics were at play, along with a dose of politics. KPLR paid the St. Louis Wrestling Club $1,500 per taping day {three shows, $500 per show} for talent. Naturally, it was wise for the promotion to stay within that budget. If a spot card were scheduled for Saturday between Kiel on Friday and taping on Sunday, transportation costs could be saved for certain talent. Over the years, however, most big names would fly out for a more lucrative card somewhere on Saturday {hopefully relatively close} and fly back for Sunday taping. A few would stay in St. Louis, but it meant giving up a profitable Saturday booking somewhere for a major player. Sam accepted it as a cost of doing business but tried to keep it under control. This, of course, meant more Kansas City talent was used on tv, and as it turned out at Kiel. At any rate, the idea of a July card was to bring to town a couple of stronger names who could be held over for tv and thus build for late summer dates. Sam figured just breaking even or making a few dollars was a good trade-off. The idea never quite worked as it was designed to, but it did generally add a name or two that made the Chase shows a bit stronger than if they were only KC guys.
