The first time I remember seeing pro wrestling was on TV in 1977 at a reception following my grandfather's funeral, of all places.   Mosca was wrestling a guy named Rodriguez (I assume either Julio or Armando aka "Rod") and began the bout by pitching him through the ropes to the far side of the ring opposite the hard camera!  It took me a year or so before I got interested in it again, but that was my vivid first recollection.  Can you check your TV results, which I assume haven't been added yet to Vance's list, to see when that may have been?  The Tv was for the Milwaukee market but I'm not sure how the bicycling of tapes reached this specific city.  Just looking for an approximation.
