Verne wrestled in Japan for IWE and other groups, right through 1980 before retirement #1. He also had sporadic appearances at MSG through the 70's, including a couple of title defenses at least (Eddie Graham and Mr. Fuji).

Verne I believe was also pinned by Bobby Duncum in 1976 a few times. There were a bunch of them in his more formative years (the 50's), but that was before the AWA came into existence.

Plus he was pinned for falls in several 2/3 title matches in the 70's, including by Billy Robinson and Jimmy Valiant. I would guess that if you counted those there would be plenty more.
