Mr Wrestling Tim Woods beat AWA Champion Mad Dog Vachon 2/3 to win AWA Title
1. Woods beat Vachon in 7:42
2. Vachon beat Woods in 24:35

Att: 4,581
Notes from historian Tim Hornbaker: Mr Wrestling unmasked before the match with Vachon revealing “Tim Woods of Michigan State.” Promoter Joe Dusek indicated Mr Wrestling was a “former Big Ten and Pan-American Games titlist.” The Omaha World Herald’s article states “Mr Wrestling Lifts Mask, Then Whips Dog For Title.” Woods would no longer wear his mask for local bouts.

The Tuesday, January 11, 1966 promotional piece in the Omaha World Herald said that “Mr Wrestling lifted Mad Dog’s title” last Saturday.

The Friday, January 14, 1966 edition of the Omaha World Herald reported that AWA President Stanley Blackburn reviewed the match between Vachon and Woods and “ruled that bout no contest after evidence was presented that the ex-masked man got the decisive third fall with both feet braced in the ring ropes.” Thus, Vachon was still AWA Champion.

Referee: Charlie Triggs
More Notes from Historian Tim Hornbaker: The article in the Omaha World Herald stated “Title Returns to Mad Dog,” even though in the article it indicated Vachon was “the champ.”

So, Tim Woods did gain a tainted victory, and may have claimed the AWA Title for a few days, but Blackburn voided out the switch and Vachon remained the official titleholder.

Thanks to Tim for getting to the bottom of this mystery. It has confused me and others for years. Please visit Tim’s website at legacyofwrestling.com.
