There is also the issue that the results from the newspapers were often given to the newspapers from someone in the office. For papers that only printed results, they may only have said who won.  Agreed.
I know of at least 3 Chicago main events that I personally attended that were reported differently. I think the results guy may have been a big fan of the wrestler in dispute.
Clawmaster changed the results when I was able to give him proof.  Claw said that he would only overturn the results if I could prove it.
The funny thing is that I was there and the guy reporting it was probably 500 miles away.
