1984 - The first-annual Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions was held by World Class Championship Wrestling at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas. 32,123 fans attended the show, held in honor of the recently deceased David Von Erich, who died on February 10 in Japan.

The results were:
- Johnny Mantell and Kelly Kiniski fought to a draw.

- Chris Adams and Sunshine defeated Jimmy Garvin and Precious, when Adams pinned Garvin.

- Butch Reed defeated Chick Donovan.

- Kamala and The Great Kabuki fought to a double-disqualification.

- The Junkyard Dog defeated The Missing Link by disqualification.

- Rock 'n' Soul (King Parsons and Buck Zumhofe) defeated WCCW American Tag Team Champioons The Super Destoyers (I and II (Bill and Scott Irwin)), when Parsons pinned Super Destoyer I, to win the title, ending the Super Destroyers' second reign.

- Fritz, Kevin and Mike Von Erich defeated WCCW Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Fabulous Freebirds (Terry Gordy, Michael Hayes and Buddy Roberts), when Kevin pinned Roberts, to win the title. Kerry later replaced the retired Fritz in the championship team.

- Kerry Von Erich defeated NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair to win the title.

My earliest wrestling memories kick in around the time of the first Parade of Champions. I was seven years old, and knew of World Class and I remember calling WWF "the one Hulk Hogan's in." So World Class has always been a sentimental favorite.
