I have to go with that St. Petersburg card for Brisco vs. Terry Funk and Race vs. Dory Funk, especially with Danny Hodge and Bob Backlund on the undercard. Once again, Deroit is a close second, though.

I'll second the St. Petersburg. 4 NWA champs and Backlund.

The Philly card caught my eye. Duncum vs Monsoon sounds real interesting.

That Florida card is really stacked but I'll choose the Georgia card to see a young and undoubtedly very green Jerry Blackwell.

4/19/75 Griffin, GA @ Sports Palace
Toru Tanaka no contest Mr. Wrestling II
Jerry Lawler beat Robert Fuller in 15:00
Don Greene beat Ricky Gibson
Larry Zbyszko drew Billy Raven 20:00
Ray Candy beat Man Mountain Jerry Blackwell in 7:00

That was back in my travelling days when my friends and I would go around the Midwest to different cards every weekend. I remember we had the choice between the Indy and Milwaukee cards and we picked Indy because of the Bruiser-Ox death match. I know Ox catches a lot of crap these days because he couldn't work much but in Chicago back then he was way over due to Luce's weekly TV show.

Looking at all the cards though the Florida card is stacked and the dark horse match had to be Hodge vs. Foley as they were both real tough guys.

I'll take Florida.
