Claw,

Do you mind posting your Backlund results here?  I have saved alot of the programs from the CWF site and some other WWWF sources I have but don't have a lot of results for Backlund.

If anyone wants me to post some of the old CWF programs or WWWF stuff I've gotten I'd be happy to.

Thanks in advance!
Eric

Eric,

Backlund will be next after the St. Louis NWA Title Matches and Piper's early bouts.

I'd be interested in his non-WWWF results.  Haven't seen many of those.

I would be interested in seeing Backlund's "drive to the championship".

One of the (never-ending) debates on kayfabememories is if Backlund was a "draw". Those that support Backlund are quick to point out that his win over Graham was a complete surprise and hurt him quite a bit (people did not think he would last)

All I really remember is a TV win over George the Animal Steele. I have heard about a TV Texas Death match vs Tor Kamata where he gets put over well but I do not remember this. I think he may have "done some jobs" before winning the belt (usually done to set up legit challengers for the new champion) but that may also have hurt his "momentum" in the eyes of the fans and added to the "out of the blue" surprise.

Backlund's first territory was Tri States for Leroy McGuirk. Those that watched McGuirk TV described him as a TV jobber and were shocked when Bob went on to have success in the Amarillo territory because he lost so much in Tri States.

I don't have many listings from this territory.

I don't think he did much at all before winning the belt, high profile wins or losses.  From what I understand, he just showed up one day and was champ soon after.  It's weird because less than a year earlier he had the run with the Missouri title, which was the stepping stone to the NWA belt.  The next thing you know, he's in the WWWF.

I am thinking he was in the WWWF for at least six months (and maybe even a year) before winning the belt. And doing nothing. Then BANG - he's the champ.

The papers were not kind to Bob either at first.  The Philadelphia papers were calling him a uknown even after he won the title.  Bob didnt even wrestle in the WWWF full time before winning the title.  That also hurt him because he was not a full time WWWF wrestler, nor did he have a real history with the WWWF.  It took almost a full year to get Bob over in the WWWF.  Actually he didnt get over till after Graham left in the end of 1978.  Coincidence?   Who knows for sure.  But Pennsylvania and Maine he was not over in for 1978 for sure.

Claw your allowed to take the hidden stuff on my board and post it here for Bobs appearances in the WWWF for 1977 and 1978.  The router is also fixed directly to my home computer now also.  Look thru it in the Texas stuff.   I do have stuff for Backlund there,  Just not sure it all is scanned over yet and loaded their yet.  I have more for 1977 and 1978, but I have not copied them over.  For those who don't understand I have a hidden message board on the internet.  Part of it deals with the WWWF and my personal research into it.  What I have listed there is matches that are not elsewhere on the internet.  Also Claw has direct access to my home computer where there is a server also, and it had tons of stuff on it, that I can not afford to host on the internet.  Basically as I have said, I have to much research, and no time and no place to really unload it correctly.

The only way to finalize my Graham record book was, and is to break every city apart.  So it is what i have been doing.  There is no one else out there doing that type of reasearch.  No one has even technically done the major cities for the WWWF.  So I have been buiding a database that Is getting to be outlandishly big with just WWWF matches that are not elsewhere known.  I have done more than I can even scan over and type up. 

It has been suggested to me that I should open a Capitol wrestling web site for what I have done, starting with McMahon moving into the Washington DC area.  Because I can rival any wrestling web site out there, with stuff no one has.


It sounds bad, but I personally am not adding to this record history.  I jsut dont feel like building up someone elses Backlund career book.  No it isnt against anyone doing such a book, nor is it because he was booked to take the title from graham.  I have never put my finger on why I just dont like the guy.  I respect him for his accomplishments, but I just do not know...

I will gladly donate to the Piper record when it starts for the unknown Texas stuff, and will gladly at times give out total histories of cities at times if there is a need to.

Great to devote so much time to research, but if not to share with those who'd be educated and enlightened by it, why do it?

After all the guys who are gonna cite it and use it most often would likely be Claw and Graham Cawthon, neither of which have any issues with "crediting" where it's due.  No issues that I've ever seen anyway.

The router is fixed. Awesome.

Big J,

The sharing/not sharing and crediting/not crediting issue has been debated before. Graham and I do credit Ron all the time. But there are many others that don't and that is what pisses Ron off. Ron's research is shared with Wong Lee, me and a few other guys. Wong and I archive stuff for Ron. We type it out and learn a shit load in the process. Eventually Graham Cawthon will be given all the WWWF stuff. He has been given a ton already. Again Ron's problem is not with me or Graham but rather with others that shall remain nameless. I will say one researcher in particular used Ron's research and a bunch of research by other historians as a hook to get people to pay money for his site.

I didnt say I wasnt going to share it.  Please read again above and you can see I gave Claw full permission to post anything with Bob in it.  I was stating that I am not going to be adding to the topic at hand.  Claw can add all that stuff easilly.  It is already typed up and ready to go.  And then it will be in chronological order also, rather than me throwing it in after he makes his posts.  And I also said I would donate to the Piper book and also whole cities if need to be.  I jsut personally dont feel like adding to Bobs career personally.  I have no interest or drive to do this.  It is why I left Claw know, so he can add my stuff to it.  Me not shareing would have been for me to private message Claw and tell him specifically not to include that stuff.  My problem is and I can see it already.  If I add to this topic, I will start to make Bob look bad with attendance figures and try to voice my personal opinion of his ability to draw for in 1977 and 1978.  And I realize this would be wrong of me, so I am stepping out of Bobs career so it is done in a nicer way.

I know part of this is my fault for not being all that great with how I say things.  I do share, and share odd stuff.  The problem I see at times is that people think I need to seek out certain individuals, or sites and give them my findings.  I do not owe anyone anything.  I do not need to seek out sites and individuals.  Anyone that I ever got anything from has got ten fold back from me.  I am always getting slack for not going to Cawthorns site and dropping off my findings.  Two reasons I do not do that is:

1. Graham Cawthorn always got his results from the other sites before he started his message board.  He belongs to the same sites I do plus more.  He can easilly copy and paste.  There is no reason I have to report in to him.  I consider him a good friend, and have chatted with him many times.  There is no issues between us at all.  But he is not my boss, and he does not pay for my research.

2.  My site has been accused of stealing his sites work, even tho I have donated hundreds of results to that site, and have given him litteraly tons of clippings.  Yet I am told in the past, I stoled those clippings that are on my site (my own research) from his site.  It just gets absurd at times. It makes me feel like putting water marks over all my clippings to share on the net.  Then no matter what, it would show where they came from.  It is easy to do in massive bunches of pics at one shot.  I just hate to ruin clippings, and it is childish to do that also.

 1959, 1963, and 1964 Bridgeport clippings.  

 Click the above to see the weekly TV taping write ups and results.

I see no one else doing city research like that above.  That stuff is not known all over the internet, nor is it shared.  I shared it, it is my work, hosted by me.  That is a link I dropped off 2 days ago to another message board.   I do have 1960, 1961, and 1962 to add to that.  I just need to finish the web pages for that when I get home.  I am working with them presently on my laptop, but I am also having fun messing with Crimson Mask on another forum board over something he said.  But when I get home I will be uploading the rest of the files to the internet for all to see.  I have brung all the weekly TV taping cards from Washingon, DC before and now from Bridgeport, CT to the internet.  The washington DC stuff when I posted links to it before, for in the 50's and 60's  brung no interest, just more issues.  WongLee posted part of my research into the greater NYC area for one of the years in the 1930's.  That topic did not get one single reply made to it.  Yet it was daily matches, and matches that were never on the internet before that.

This type of stuff is not in any way related to my main drive of resarch.  I did not research Washington DC badck to the late 1800's or the greater NYC area to the same time period for nothing.  It was done to share.  I share, I just like to drop massive amounts off at one drop.  I want my research to be as thorough as possible.  I like my dumps of results to cover every single card held.  Any area I researched, I do that in.

When Cawthorn gets my stuff, he will know it.  It isnt like I am going to be giving him a hundred or so results.  Were talking over a thousand will be dumped on him as it stands right now.   I will keep his butt busy for weeks transfering over stuff.  In the past Cawthorn has instant messaged me, and said to me that he got new Graham stuff, and then dropped me a link.  I went to his site, and seen nothing new.  It was all my own research that others gave to him, but they never told him where they got the material from.  It made Cawthorn and myself both look foolish, because here he thought he had some new awesome stuff for me, and here I thought he found something great for me,  only to find out that it was mine to begin with.

Not sure which territory Backlund went to next. I'm sure it's either Florida, Georgia or the AWA. I'll figure it out tomorrow.

great to see the early Backlund results, thanks for posting those

will just say that Ron had always been very generous in sharing stuff with me, problem is once something is posted on the internet it really becomes everbody's, people use pics and info from my site all the time, there are sites that just hotlink to my pics in their profiles etc, once I put it up it is free game really  if they plug the site or give credit then it's a bonus. I never put stuff up to get credit just to share it

it becomes very convoluted , when someone credits Graham for example when they post WWWF results , they are really crediting everyone who has ever contributed to his site, Clawmaster too , I credit CM all the time but if he got them from someone else it is a credit for him giving them to me

I have contributed tons of stuff , mostly clippings to many of the territory sites out there and have received much in return, I am not a historian by any means , have spent some hours in the library but mostly just collect stuff so am very appreciative to those who do all the grunt work !

Gotcha and I hope my question didnt come off as an insult, it surely isn't.

I admire what you and Claw and Graham and others do for maintaining history.

The Mitsu Yoshida you see in the Florida results was Riki Choshu. The Spider in some earlier results was Randy Savage.

Great stuff-thanks!

Changing the time-frame a bit for a question I just thought of:  Did Backlund have any successful title defenses between 11/23/94 Survivor Series and the 11/26/94 MSG show where he lost to Nash?  O

I'll let Claw have a break. Here is what I found on Grahams site:

WWF @ Pittsburgh, PA - Civic Center - November 25, 1994 (4,000)
Pierre defeated the 1-2-3 Kid
Duke Drose defeated Mo
Diesel (sub. for Bret Hart) defeated King Kong Bundy
Davey Boy Smith defeated WWF World Champion Bob Backlund via count-out
Mabel defeated Steven Dunn
WWF IC Champion Razor Ramon defeated Jeff Jarrett
The Undertaker defeated IRS

HBF, not sure if you have ever visited Graham's site but I am sure you would like reading it over.

Thanks for posting that.

Shit, Backlund did worse than Tommy Rich if he could not even win a title defense!

I've been to Graham's site but totally forgot about it.  Thanks for the heads up!

Is it my imagination (?) but I thought Backlund had formed a tag team with Steve Keirn. Could have sworn I saw them together ranked in the Apter mags.

Backlund and Keirn had the FLA tag belts back in 1975 (I think).  Here's a pic:

I just want to take a minute to thank all the guys who research and print and everything else with all the results. I've read results for countless hours and enjoy going over them and using them for reference.

Claw and Bolo, who I know personally are great guys who share everything they have.

 

To all the other guys, a special thanks to you too. You keep the history alive.

Keirn and Backlund teamed in 1976, as I got these programs from the CWF site (I think Man of a Thousand Holds from KM runs it).  It's an awesome site.

 They wrestled one of the Moondogs and that Lancaster guy who used to post on one of the boards in the past (I can't remember which one, but he seemed nice enough).

Jim Lancaster posts on KM. Decent guy. Shares a lot of results.

Many cards I'm sharing on this board are ones I've never shared before. That's true of the Florida Backlund stuff and the Flair Mid Atlantic stuff. The past several months I've been typing out many cards from clippings I bought from Mark Eastridge. The Florida cards are mostly from Robert VanKavelaar. Mark and RVK have given me so much stuff for free that when they are selling record books or clippings, I'm happy to support them with $$$ and with hype for their work.

I haven't seen Barry Rose (man of a thousand holds) around in a while. He's a good guy too.

Claw, if my brother can ever find the old results we'd get from MSG and NJ in the Newark Star Ledger and (sometimes, at my grandmothers) the NY Daily News, I'll get you more.  I remember clipping alot of the previews and the results myself, including the original Shea card from 8/9/80. 

Problem is, they are lost somewhere in my family's house and there have been so many grandchildren, cousins, etc.....through there that it might be a lost cause.

So I take it that Backlund won not by pinfall or submission?  I don't recall him ever winning the GA Belt.
I know he won the Western States in '74 (The Funks put him over) and Missouri in 1976 (beating Race and losing to Brisco).

Since Backlund was not originally scheduled to be in the match, he did not win the Title.

Backlund had to be splitting time between Georgia and another promotion. He doesn't show up in AWA results until December of 1975. He arrived in St. Louis during December of 1975 as well.

In the old 8mm tapes of Backlund in the AWA, he wrestles Khaziri and also Duncum.  However, in the Duncum match, Backlund is running around very cowardly and I could not figure out what the deal was.  Wasn't he supposed to be the babyface?  Any idea what the hell is actually going on there.
KHawk-I think I got this footage from you so if you know the story, I am all ears.

Thanks!
Eric

HBF wrote: In the old 8mm tapes of Backlund in the AWA, he wrestles Khaziri and also Duncum.  However, in the Duncum match, Backlund is running around very cowardly and I could not figure out what the deal was.  Wasn't he supposed to be the babyface?  Any idea what the hell is actually going on there.
KHawk-I think I got this footage from you so if you know the story, I am all ears.

Thanks!
Eric


I have no real explanation for that. Maybe they did some role-reversal because the crowd was hostile towards the faces that night?

I have to imagine that happened in some of the cities even back then. Maybe that was one of them.

Just a guess on my part, though.

Thanks for trying.  I have wondered about that few minutes of footage for years now.  If any old AWA fans have any explanation on that, it's something that really intrigues me.

Maybe Verne was a visionary and was testing the "Mr. Backlund" gimmick 20 years ahead of it's time.:D

Backlund's first WWWF title match. Interesting that it is held on a non-WWWF card (perhaps to "protect" Backlund)

Who are The Patriots I & II that are all over the results from Texas and Florida?  Looks like Backlund had a very long run with them in both territories.

Backlund's first WWWF title match. Interesting that it is held on a non-WWWF card (perhaps to "protect" Backlund)



Seems thrown together by Muchnick rather than having anything to do with the WWWF.  At that point he had only appeared on a few WWWF TV in 6-man matches or against jobbers.  He was actually still an AWA regular more than a WWWF regular and not really getting pushed there either.  In fact up until this point, St. louis is the only place that Backund has been pushed.  Going through these results, it seems like he was given some chances higher on the card in tag teams in Florida, but as a singles competitor he was strictly the guy who would go out there and warm up the crowd with a 20-minute draw as one of the first 3 matches on the card everywhere he went.   Except in St. Louis where he was  given main events seemingly out of nowhere.  I don't know if maybe Vince Sr. told Muchnick to book it to see what kind of match they could have together, possibly but I'm thinking no.

The Funks put Backlund over in the Western States (TX) back in '74 and that's a lot of 'rasslin cred.  Over the years from what I have read, I take it that when Backlund came into the Western States territory he was supposed to be jobbed out.  Dory Jr. and the "booking committee" (I need to find the story I read but it's great) saw the new guys and took one look at Backlund to realize they could draw with him based on his build (not to sound gay, as if there's anything wrong with that:D

I say they should've pulled the double-cross and had Steve Travis shoot on Race and get the NWA title.  :)

Claw will probably move this to the comments section but I just wanted to point out this was during Backlund St. Louis run in 1976.   Thanks for posting that.:D

Who's the douche doing commentary who keeps calling Hogan "The Invisible One"?  And then he starts playing "Big Time" out of nowhere.  Sorry, I just can't get through it.

It sounds like some dude watching soundless 8mm films talking while using a video camera to record it.

You think Big Time was weird?  He busts out My Kind of Lover, by Billy Squire towards the end of the match.

Claw if you need to kill these non-Backlund record book posts, feel free --

He (Rocky) is the guy that has all of that 8 mm footage of the 1970s Boston Garden shows. He does commentary on the matches (and ruins them) -- he also somehow has the video footage of Ivan Koloff beating Bruno Sammartino at MSG and some other 1970s MSG events as well.

No need to kill the Rocky Raymond talk. Rocky had the cheesiest music.

I needed a break from Backlund. I'll finish Greg Valentine & Larry Zbyszko first before I go back to work on Backlund and Andre.

Nice work on Backlund's record guys!

Got a few things to add to what's already here.

Bob Backlund:

? Mr. Fuji 24/02/1978 Long Island, NY
W-COR Ken Patera 27/03/1978 Boston, MA

Think this one could be confused with the match against Spiros Arion.

W-P Luke Graham ??/03/1978 Binghamton, NY
? Luke Graham ??/04/1978 Portland, ME

There is a return match for this in June in Portland, not sure if this or the March match took place.

W-COR George Steele 20/05/1978 Philadelphia, PA

Have this as a countout win.

W-COR Spiros Arion ??/05/1978 Wheeling, WV
W-P Luke Graham ??/04-05/1978 Altoona, PA

Again, not sure if this took place.

W Victor Rivera 02/06/1978 Los Angeles, CA

Have this for the card where Backlund won a battle royal. May be that he eliminated Rivera last? In which case this wouldn’t have been a title match.

NC Billy Graham 24/06/1978 Philadelphia, PA
            *Referee declared both Backlund and Graham too bloody to continue.

You have this as a draw, believe that both men were too bloody – can you confirm Ron?

? Billy Graham 07/07/1978 Albany, NY

Never had this result before and I’ve discussed lots of matches with Ron, can you confirm it happened as it’s not on your site?

W-COR Billy Graham 12/07/1978 Philadelphia, PA

This took place on the same day as the dq against Graham in Landover, MD.

W Luke Graham 14/07/1978 Asbury Park, NJ
W Billy Graham 21/09/1978 Totowa, NJ

Have this as a Backlund win.

W Gorilla Monsoon 10/10/1978 Toronto, ON

Is this a duplicate of the September match?

D Harley Race 29/10/1978 Orlando, FL
            *Race was NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Both titles on the line.

Can anybody confirm this was a double title match?

DDQ Greg Valentine 19/02/1979 New York, NY

Have this as a ddq not a draw. Was it ddq?

W Bulldog Brower 01/03/1979 Cherry Hill, NJ
L-COR Peter Miavia 02/03/1979 Albany, NY
? Greg Valentine ??/03/1979 Boston, MA
? Bulldog Brower ??/04/1979 Landover, MD
L-COR Peter Maivia ??/05/1979 Pittsburgh, PA
W Ron Star 06/06/1979 Los Angeles, CA
W Ernie Ladd 13/06/1979 Toronto, ON
W Butcher Brannigan 29/06/1979 Los Angeles, CA
W-P Peter Maivia ??/06/1979 Pittsburgh, PA
            *Special guest referee Gorilla Monsoon.
W Peter Maivia ??/06/1979 Binghamton, NY

I have a ton more defences after this.

Claw, do you want me to post them now or wait until you have listed the other results for Bob?

? Billy Graham 07/07/1978 Albany, NY

Yes the Albany match in 1978 is confirmed.   Albany, NY ran every other friday for years and years.  I know, I researched it out for years and years for the 70's.

And if your looking for more Graham vs Backlund, we also have from Albany probably the best match with Bob challenging for the title they ever did together.  I seen some of the other ones, and they litteraly sucked.

December 9, 1977  Albany, NY
Bob Backlund won by DQ over WWWF Champion Superstar Billy Graham, due to Grahams excessive roughness.

There is over 80 matches that are not on my site for my next Graham update. Aproximatley 16 of them are him as WWWF Champion.

For the Binghamton, NY date...   Luke wasnt in the WWWF in March of 78 at the house shows.  Also the date for Binghamton was March 18, 1978 and Luke was not on that card.  Binghamton was running once a month on Saturdays.

As for the Luke Graham  match in April of 78...  Their is no such thing, and their is no card in April for Portland.  Portland and Bangor did not run in April of 78.  The Portland date was to be April 11, 1978, but it was assigned to Augusta.  Also looking at the promo box for the June card, it does not mention anything about a return match. 

Not sure who is giving you this stuff but they need to check their sources, or their own work before passing it off to you.  This is the schedule for Portland and Bangor and the other cities who were more than monthly in the mid 70's.  The other result sites do not reflect these cities correctly, in how they were ran with their line ups and results.  These are a few of the cities I have personally researched into their histories.  so I know their schedules and most other WWWF cities and how they scheduled them.

North Attleboro = every Friday
Albany, NY = every other Friday
Philadelphia, PA  arena  2 saturdays per month or almost every other Saturday
North Dartmouth, MA = every 3 weeks on Mondays
Portland, ME = every 3 weeks on Tuesdays
Philadelphia, PA  TV   = every 3 weeks on Tuesdays

W-COR Spiros Arion ??/05/1978 Wheeling, WV
W-P Luke Graham ??/04-05/1978 Altoona, PA

I have the correct date for Wheeling, just not sure what hard drive or flash drive it is on.


W Victor Rivera 02/06/1978 Los Angeles, CA
Have this for the card where Backlund won a battle royal. May be that he eliminated Rivera last? In which case this wouldn’t have been a title match.
This is where they started working the angle of Piper and Backlund.  I most likely have the clippings for this also somewhere

W-COR George Steele 20/05/1978 Philadelphia, PA
Have this as a countout win.

The 3 different Philly papers just state it as a win.

 

W-COR Billy Graham 12/07/1978 Philadelphia, PA

This took place on the same day as the dq against Graham in Landover, MD.

Landover has always been known to do matinees a few times a year.

 

D Harley Race 29/10/1978 Orlando, FL
            *Race was NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Both titles on the line.

Can anybody confirm this was a double title match?

The programs said they were.  When the programs were printed Crimson Mask was late showing up for the event to check the programs for accuracy.  So Eddie Graham said "since their printed already we will make it title vs title, just like we advertised it, and how we had it printed.  What ever you guys do, dont tell that crimson kid that its title vs title."   And naturally the rest is history

Thanks Ron, great info as always. Let me know if you manage to find the Wheeling and LA clippings.

The countout win against Steele may be that I was given the result by somebody present at the show. A few people on the boards over the years (people who I consider to be reliable at least) have given me the details of matches.

I know I still have a bit of false info in my records but by singling out each wrestler's career its making it easier to confirm matches or otherwise.

Bob Backlund:

? Ivan Koloff 06/10/1979 Pittsburgh, PA
? Pat Patterson 06/10/1979 Springfield, MA
            *Cage match.

Have these 2 on the same date as the Hussein Arab match.

W Swede Hanson 10/10/1979 Landover, MD

Also have this match in between the 6th and 13th dates.

W-P Jimmy Valiant ??/11/1979 Greenwich, CT

 

Does anybody have any info for the above? I'm not sure about the matches on the 6th and the Hanson match on the 10th. Doubt they would have had matches 4 days apart in the same town, remember he faced Hussein Arab on the 6th, also in Landover.

I have the following.

Bob Backlund

W                     The Hangman                            ??/12/1979                    Los Angeles, CA

 

Not too sure about this one but...

 

L                      Bobby Duncum                         11/01/1980                    Pittsburgh, PA
            *Referee declared Backlund too bloody to continue.

You have this listed as a Backlund win. Could it not be that he just retained due to the blood finish? This was the same finish that occurred in Binghamton, NY on the 25th. Any clippings to verify?

Necrosis,

For the majority of Backlund results after 1978, I'm just going with what Graham Cawthon has listed on his site. It's possible the Pittsburgh match was a blood stoppage finish. They may have done the same finish around the horn to set up rematches.

Let me check my Los Angeles results for the bout against the Hangman.

Re: That Los Angeles bout

I don't have that one listed. You might try asking Kurt Brown (Lucky Pierre on KM).

December 7, 1979  Bob was returning back from Japan.  Like Billy Graham and all of Bobs tours of Japan, they would normally stop off in Los Angeles.

Durring my time of researching, and it ended at the end of 1978... Maybe I should includ 1979 in my research from now on.

Pittsburgh ran Fridays, Springfield ran Saturdays.  So if you dont have anything for the 5th, I'd bet $10.00 that Pittsburgh belongs on October 5, 1979
So at a quick glance it most likley should be reflecting like this...

October 5, 1979  Pittsburgh, PA
October 6, 1979  Landover, MD - Matinee
October 6, 1979  Springfield, MA -Evening show

 

As for that October tenth date for Landover...  I'd remove it off your records, and sit it in another file for now.  Landover ran on the weekends, not in the middle of the week.  Perhaps it was another Md card in the area.  Like Salisbury, frederick, Cumberland, Hagerstown and etc..

Were any of Backlund's defenses against Ray Stevens in late '82, roughly Oct, Nov., Dec filmed? There was one on 11/05/82 at The Meadowlands and 12/04/82 at the Boston Garden. Were those televised?
How were those matches remembered? I don't really remember Backlund's defenses against Ray, nor have I ever thought of it happening before. I thought Stevens spent his time in the WWF with Snuka mostly. Were they some of Bob's best matches in '82? I would love to see those matches. On paper they look like they should have been classics.

necrosis if you go through my Graham record book you will find more Backlund stuff for 82 and 83 when you read the newspaper clippings that are attached to it.

One thing overlooked is Bob working, and booking in the North east after he left the WWF.  One such card is this:

December 2, 1984



 

If you read on the bottom of that poster you will see a KM poster their by the same name.  SGT. Muldoon.  He posts their at KM in the ICW- Savoldi forum mainly.   He is a great wealth of information on Backlund when he was working, and promoting for the different North East indy promotions durring this time frame.  If I remember correctly and I may be wrong, but I think Muldoon says this poster was from the Eastern Wrestling Alliance, and Bob worked for a few promotions in the North East.

Now I need to go off and stab myself for helping out in this topic.

Change the Altoona date from February 14, 1985 to the 13th.



In 1984/85 Altoona, PA.  hosted WWF, NWA and Georgia wrestling cards.

Here's where my memory is fuzzy from too much imbibing in college:  Was Muraco in GCW at the time?  Was he in a program with Rhodes?  He won the Intercontinetal title around April/May of 1981 and lost it later that year to Pedro IIRC.  Then, he reappeared in the WWF around late 1982, again IIRC. 

 I can't see Rhodes jobbing in less than a minute unless he had chronic diarrehea (have to throw a shit-inspired idea in there given the wrestler's fetish with it) or something similiar.

Don't be so hard on yourself Ron. Its more fun when we can stab you instead ;)

Ok, I took a look through the clippings for 82-83 and found the following:

11/02/82 Erie, PA @ Erie County Fieldhouse

01/26/83 Hamburg, PA @ Fieldhouse

Cap center newspaper adds were printed in the papers sometimes up to 3 weeks before the event.  Add in the time for someone to create and rearange the advertisement from last month.  The offices were lazy by this time and did not worry about correcting things.  This stuff was sent to the papers and the papers printed it and no one corrected it.  People make fun of Phil Zacko when he ran the different venues.  But he corrected his promo box advertisements, up to the day of the show itself.

As for being hard on myself.  I have to be.  Because someone is going to tell me what a impact Bob had, and how over he was in 1977.  Then they will proceeed to tell me all about his sellouts in 77 and 78 for McMahaon.

p.s.  Don't be stealing any Graham matches dealing with the various WWF titles from that site     :D:tongue:;)

Oh before I forget... As for the Boston card.  The boston paper never did mention anything about the gimmick matches held their.  It was a bland paper with the results.  "just the facts"     I view Boston as I do most cities.  Their paper sucked with the coverage of wrestling.  What I have learned to do is to step away from the big picture.  I do it more and more for all cities.   You will be surprised how far out results are printed, and printed better and more accuarate as you pull back from the big city.

If you do research you have to go in with a open mind.  I havent played with Boston yet, to hit the outer city papers to get the better writups.

Lets say we use Albany, NY as my example.   Albany is running 2 newspapers.  "The Knickebocker news" has nothing to do with wrestling at all.  But the sister paper Schenectady, NY.  I opened up the

Muraco attacked Rhodes before the bell and hit him several times with a foreign object. Thus, the quick pin. I seem to recall someone saying that Dusty moved back to Florida right after this (from Georgia). that may be in this thread or I saw it somewhere else.

Great photo spread of that whole Flair-Backlund card in one of the Apter mags a few months after it happened. Photo coverage of every match on the card.

I don't remember this at all.  What was up with the Backlund-Blair angle?  They wrestle each other in I assume babyface matches, then team together out of respect?  Really?  Where the hell was I for that?  And the other babyface vs. babyface matches with Backlund and Santana and Bellomo were weird too.

I used to have an AWA show hyping this... it was an AWA show (or maybe it was part of the Pro Wrestling USA banner.)

AWA show under the Pro Wrestling USA Banner. Verne thought hiring Backlund would give him a draw in the Northeast.

My NY geography isn't very good. Neither is Meltzer's. I got the card from WON. I googled Ridgewood Grove Arena and it said Brooklyn.

Well I don't know where this place is but there is a Ridgewood, Queens.  I want to say it's in the Forest Hills neighborhood, which isn't all that far from ECW's Elk's Lodge.

Ridgewood Grove Arena
This 4,000-seat club in Queens near the border with Brooklyn was another “home” arena for Bummy Davis, who fought there 18 times, including a four-round decision victory in his debut on May 22, 1937. Davis, a king of the club fighters, compiled a record of 65-10-4, 46 knockouts, and was good enough to fight several main events in Madison Square Garden, but he never got a world title shot.
Tony Canzoneri celebrated his 18th birthday on the Grove’s opening night on Nov. 6, 1926 and lost for the first time in 32 fights by dropping a 10-round decision against Davey Abad in a featherweight bout. Al Singer, who won and lost the lightweight title in 1930, made 11 appearances there in the 1920s. Among other stars who fought at the Grove were Sugar Ray Robinson, three times in 1941, and Rocky Graziano and Sandy Saddler, four fights each.

I also found this, which cites BK as the location:

NEW RIDGEWOOD GROVE PROMOTER
(New York Times, December 30, 1942)
Promoter Bill Johnston, who has been operating small boxing clubs for several years, yesterday announced he had acquired a three-year lease on the Ridgewood Grove S.C., Brooklyn, where he plans to conduct shows every Saturday night, commencing Jan. 9. Lulu Costantino is to be a principal in his first feature. Johnston operated the Ridgewood Grove two years ago.

Just for the hell of it, from the same site:

Sunnyside Garden
This boxing venue, which seated only 2,400, was built in 1926 as a private indoor tennis court in Sunnyside, Queens, for millionaire Jay Gould. Future middleweight champion Vito Antuofermo made his debut with a win there in 1971, as did heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney in 1977.
Jose Torres fought at Sunnyside six times, and Harold Johnson, light heavyweight champion in 1961-63, made a one-fight comeback here three years after retiring when he was stopped in the third round by Herschel Jacobs in 1971. In the little Garden’s final fight Ramon Ronquilla scored a split decision over Bill Jackson in an eight-round light heavyweight bout on June 24, 1977 before 427 fans. The building was razed in December 1977.

I saw a couple of WWF shows at the old Ridgewood Grove. One had Tito Santana vs. Orndorff in the main. It was built in 1910 and it seemed like they had a bunch of the original employees still working there. It rested literally on the Brooklyn/Queens border but its ZIP code was actually Brooklyn. However if you crossed the street you were in Queens. I saw my very first show at Sunnyside Garden. My moms took me and a bunch of my rotten friends to a Saturday afternoon show. Morales headlined defending the WWWF strap against Mr. Fugi. When Pedro won, he worked his way down the aisle (we were in the 4th row) to shake hands and hug my mom (he was obviously trying for some after show action)

Both venues were stereotypical smokey arenas with the old timey feel which can never, ever be duplicated.

These were great.  Do we have any more Backlund results coming?  We left off in August 1985 and I'd be curious to see what indy and international results are out there before Backlund returned to the WWF.

Didn't he fight Sakaguchi in a judo jacket match at MSG?? I believe I've seen that result.  I bet that was a crazy match to see.

I went to see Judo at the 96 Olympics after the wrestling sold out.  It was pretty intense stuff.

I know Backlund had a few matches in Japan for Maeda's promotion. One was against Takada. I probably can find listings for them if I use google.

Bob also wrestled on the independent scene prior to his WWF run in the 90s.

I assume Dennis Coralluzzo was the promoter.  I know Joel Goodhart brought Backlund in too a few times.

i find it interesting that backlund was a mid-carder at best in florida.  if this was the case,  why did the grahams suggest to vince sr. that backlund would be a good choice as champ if he wasn't even in main events in florida?

I also have Backlund doing a tour of WAR in Japan in Aug.-Sep. '94 and winning the 6-Man titles there with Warlord and Scott Putski (talk about a bizarre team).

Also back in Dec. '84 he held an indy title for some company called the NEWF.

That's sad.  For about 2 months commission checks at the time, I could have booked Bob to fake wrestle in my backyard.

Anyone who says the Indies are an alternative is delusional.

Edit-I do look forward to anybody posting 1992-forward WWF results for Bob's return.

Thanks in advance!

Could be The "Newfy Entertainment & Wrestling Federation" in Newfoundland. JK:tongue:

What was the date of the Backlund Ivan Koloff match that was in '91 or '92? I've seen it on YouTubs a few months back. It was Herb Abrams UWF or something wasn't it?

Everyone ready for a bizarre Backlund result?  Try this on for size:

WAR 3rd Anniversary Show
July 7, 1995
Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan
Attendance: 9,000

Bob Backlund/Jimmy Snuka/Mil Mascaras beat Hector Garza/The Eliminators in 18:08 when Mascaras pinned Garza

I would love to see this match.  Anyone think that any of these guys was willing to take the corkscrew plancha or Total Elimination?

Looks like Backlund had a nice run of going over during that late 1992 time-period.  I don't see a loss.

I don't think he lost at all when he came back until Razor Ramon pinned him at Wrestlemania 9. It was all downhill for a while after that until his heel turn. I remember being bummed out at how his push ended abruptly that day. I had never seen him pinned before.

From the 1993 Royal Rumble,

Yokozuna won the Royal Rumble in 66:35 to earn the title shot at Bret Hart at Wrestlemania in Las Vegas on 4/4. It started with the legendary Ric Flair vs. Bob Backlund match-up for 2:00. Over the years I've seen Dr. Flair pull out many cures for some of the most deadly diseased wrestlers and literally save matches with some of the most terminally untalented wrestlers around. Yet with Backlund, if there's a cure, they haven't discovered it yet. It was a really bad opening which is surprising because in putting those two together you'd have thought otherwise. Papa Shango came in to save the day, (as if) and with a separated shoulder, a lot of help he was. He was out of there at 2:32, obviously his 30 second tenure was because he really wasn't ready to work. Backlund took all the chops and his chest was red. Finally Ted DiBiase sort-of-saved the day, but it really didn't get rolling until Brian Knobbs came in and DiBiase and Flair bumped like they were rubber balls. Next in was Virgil. Knobbs was out at 8:59 when DiBiase ducked a charge. Jerry Lawler entered to almost no crowd reaction (but it was still more then Backlund got). Although Lawler is a heel on television, he worked mainly face style. It's really sad to see these legends of the early 80s like Lawler and Backlund be such nothing acts on a major national show. Funny to see Flair and Lawler go at it since there is some legit heat there, or at least was at one point. Evidently there was a lot more heat on Lawler then just with Flair. Max Moon was in next, but he didn't last long, missing a crescent kick on Lawler and flying over. His spaceship was double parked anyway. Genichiro Tenryu was next in, to the least crowd reaction thus far. Even with Flair in, it was getting bad at this point, although Flair was the focal point of everything up to this point and the rest of the guys were just staying out of his way. Mr. Perfect saved the day, getting a big pop and of course locking right up with Flair. Skinner was in next. At 18:37, Perfect clotheslined Flair over the top. The match died at this point. Koko Ware was in next, wearing pants that covered his eyelids. Well, almost. That outfit looks ridiculous. Perfect dropkicked Skinner out at 21:15. Nobody missed him. Samu was in next, then Berzerker. Perfect threw out Lawler at 24:54. Berzerker kicked Virgil over the top in 25:15. DiBiase, Samu and Ware all got Perfect on the apron and Lawler, who had already been eliminated, started trying to pull him out by the hair. After a long tease, Perfect was eliminated in 25:25. The idea was obviously that Mr. Perfect would carry things until it was Undertaker's turn, like a relay face. Flair runs the first leg, then Hennig, then Undertaker, then Tatanka, then Yokozuna and finally Randy brings it to its climax. Only problem is they needed one more person during each leg to work with, and only Earthquake for Yokozuna fit the bill. Undertaker was next in. Berzerker threw Backlund out threw the middle rope and hit him with a chair twice. Bob sold it by napping on the apron for about 10 minutes. It was okay until somebody woke him up. Undertaker then started dumping everyone in sight, with Samu out at 27:05 and Tenryu at 27:26. Then the cursed Terry Taylor came in to no reaction. They've destroyed his credibility and then some. His credibility was done wonders for again, as he lasted all of 44 seconds before he and Ware went out together, thanks to DiBiase. Undertaker dumped DiBiase at 29:04 and Berzerker at 29:41, leaving him alone in the ring (Backlund was still on his nap time). So unannounced, uninvited, not involved in the match, out comes the nearly eight feet tall and growing by the day formerly known as El Gigante (Jorge Gonzales), with a new beard and wearing what appeared to an Ultimate Warrior's old underwear (skin colored bodytights with muscles drawn on them) that the tailor accidentally made a few sizes too big. He got in the ring and did the stare-down with Undertaker. The stare-down wasn't bad. But then he threw the first punch. It reminded me of a show at the Meadowlands a few years back where El Gigante and Sid Vicious were on opposite sides in a six-man and everyone wanted to see them lock-up. Once they locked up and Gigante threw the first blow, nobody wanted to see either of them again. Well, he threw the first blow and that hurt it live. Giant Gonzales will draw a lot of money, but the amount of money he'll draw is directly proportional to the lack of actual body contact he does that anyone sees. Anyway, he destroyed Undertaker and threw him over in 30:52 and Undertaker laid on the apron dead until a few minutes later when the ghost of Percy Pringle showed up with the urn and he limped out of the ring. While all this fun was going on (and actually it was fun compared to watching a Battle Royal that would never end), Damian Demento and IRS drew their numbers but they never got in the ring. You can imagine how much people were anticipating that. Backlund woke up around now so there were three in there. Finally Tatanka came in followed by Jerry Saggs. If things weren't bad enough, next came Typhoon. The one bad thing about Gonzales (as if there's only one) is that a huge monster like Typhoon who is 6-6 looks like just another short fat guy after seeing Gonzales. Fatu was in next, followed by Earthquake. Quake threw out Typhoon at 43:50. Carlitos Colon was in next. Apparently Gorilla Monsoon talked of him as being a young star. Well, he's too young for social security, so I guess that qualifies. Colon threw out Demento in 45:55. Tito Santana was in next. Backlund threw out Fatu in 47:17. Rick Martel was in for his final WWF appearance. IRS flew over the top when Earthquake ducked a charge at 49:35. Yokozuna was in next. More reaction than any of the last group of entrants, but not what I had expected. He threw out Tatanka in 52:05 and Colon in 52:25. Fans were into Earthquake locking up with him. It was an interesting match-up. At this point Owen Hart flew in. Yokozuna threw out Earthquake in 53:55 and people seemed impressed. The last two to enter were Repo Man and Randy Savage. Yokozuna threw out Santana in 58:04. Owen Hart dropkicked Saggs out in 58:24. Yokozuna threw out Hart in 58:55. It looked as though Hart blew out his knee taking the best bump of the show (unlike the Battle Royals that were legendary here in the 70s, you didn't have any insane bumps over the top although this was as close as it got). Savage threw out Repo Man in 58:59. Backlund threw out Martel in 60:30 leaving the final three as Backlund, Yokozuna and Savage. At about the 45:00 mark, some people started caring about Backlund but it wasn't anywhere close to how it was made out on television. When Yokozuna dumped him in 61:18, there were almost as many cheers as boos.

Wrestlemania IX from Herb,

Razor Ramon pinned Bob Backlund in 3:45 with an inside cradle. Fans cheered Ramon. This was probably the first pinfall loss Backlund has ever done in the WWF and that must date back to around 1977.

July 17 1993  - The WWF held an event at USAir Arena in Landover, Maryland, the first show since the former Capital Centre was renamed. The results were:
- Jim Powers pinned Papa Shango with an inside cradle.
- Tatanka fought Bam Bam Bigelow to a double countout.
- Bret Hart defeated WWF Champion Yokozuna by disqualification when Mr. Fuji hit Hart with the Japanese flag as he had Yokozuna in the Sharpshooter. Lex Luger made the save. Yokozuna retained the title.
- The Smoking Gunns (Billy and Bart) defeated Afa and Samu.
- The Bastion Booger pinned Bob Backlund with a sitdown splash.
- WWF Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels pinned Mr. Perfect after Sweet Chin Music to retain the title.

That was one of the first shows I attended. I remember being shocked that Perfect laid down for the superkick, since it really wasn't emphasized as a finisher at that point.
