Do you have Scott Teal's "History of Wrestling at Madison Square Garden"?  BJ sent me a copy one year (thanks again man!).  Anway, I also noticed that during the Morales era there were a lot of spot appearances by Eddie Graham's, Gagne's and Funk's people, often with themselves showing up at the MSG shows.
