That's a good question.  I'd be curious to see where Dusty actually went to defend the belt.  I was always under the impression that he pretty much stayed in Florida with a few exceptions.

Was Dusty playing heel in any of these?

I would think the Von Erich match he would have to.

That's what I was thinking but I have trouble picturing it.  I know the von Erichs were heels in Florida but they're not getting booed in Texas.  But after starting as a heel in Texas, I think Dusty was extremely over there by '79 too.
