He mentions he wrestled on the very last IWA show in 1977 and defeated Rip Tyler to become the final IWA Junior Heavyweight Champion. Could the Gene Stevens listed on the 8/19/77 card be Gene Legion? I do not think this was the final IWA card because the venue he describes winning the title in was something like a tobacco barn but I don't see Gene Stevens listed anywhere else in results nor the name Gene Ligon.
BrettEW, it was Gene Ligon. His name was spelled correctly in the preview article here.
