I have a huge list of Eddie Einhorn (later Johnny Powers) IWA results. Is their already an IWA results thread I should know about or should I create my own with the results I've collected over the years?

Brett, Sonny King, Butcher Brannigan and Mike 'The Hippie" Boyette were gone from the IWA before the end of September 1976. Sonny King started his own promotion, the Southern Wrestling Alliance in October 1976 and Brannigan and Boyette worked with him. I have several of the SWA ads if you would like to see them. Sylvester Ritter wrestled some matches for Sonny King's organization before joining the IWA later.

I will post the SWA cards here tomorrow so you can see them. Also during October and November of 1975, some of the IWA guys worked with Charlie Babb in a short lived promotion called Super Pro Wrestling which was also the name of their tv show.I can post those too if you like.

Are the date, lineup, and results of the last IWA card definitively known?

Not definitely tamalie. The last IWA ad I have from their original 1975-77 run is from Hendersonville, NC on August 19, 1977. On September 22, 1977 Bulldog Brower defended the North American Title in Danville, VA on a card run by East Central Championship Wrestling. Then on October 8, 1977 the American Wrestling Federation came to my hometown for a tv taping with guys that included some of the former IWA talent. The AWF was taking over the IWA tv timeslot in Winston-Salem, NC because the IWA had "ceased operations".

During the 1981-82 tv season, reruns of the original IWA tv shows began airing on stations in NC. Here is one of the house shows they ran during that revival of interest in the IWA. Dave Routh did some work for them as a referee at this time. He said he remembers 5 or 6 shows they ran in 1982.

According to former IWA/JCP referee Tommy Young on the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the final IWA show where Eddie Einhorn was involved with was the 10/2 New Haven, CT event.

Tried to updated my original IWA listings but now everything seems to cut off around March 1977. Anyone know how I can fix this?

The IWA tapes ran in Malaysia in the 1985-86 range. I'd be stunned if they didn't try to run some cards there as a follow up, but so far attempts at finding info haven't been fruitful.

It is right. During the 1981-82 tv season, the old IWA tapes from 1975-77 were rerun  on several North Carolina stations. They were so popular that Johnny Powers got some of the old crew back together and ran some house shows. My buddy Dave Routh told me he was the referee for some of the shows. Here is the clipping from a 1982 show here in Mount Airy. I think I also have one from North Wilkesboro, NC for 1982.

Here is the ad for the card that tamalie mentioned above. I can't remember who Dave Routh said that wrestled with Newt Tattrie as the Mongols. Mighty Igor had been wrestling for Championship Wrestling from Florida prior to this if I remember right. Dave did say that not all the guys that were advertised showed up. Mighty Igor, Bulldog Brower, Johnny Powers and Luis Martinez  were there. I did see some of the promos that were taped for these 1982 shows.

He wasn't. The result clipping that clipcorner sent me posted above confirmed that it was Jim Tucker who teamed with Geeto Mongol on that card.

Did they give Jim Tucker a haircut and call him Bolo Mongol in the hopes fans wouldn't notice the difference between him and the guy from the old IWA tapes?

I heard an interview with Gene Legion from about 10 years ago on 57Talk. He mentions he wrestled on the very last IWA show in 1977 and defeated Rip Tyler to become the final IWA Junior Heavyweight Champion. Could the Gene Stevens listed on the 8/19/77 card be Gene Legion? I do not think this was the final IWA card because the venue he describes winning the title in was something like a tobacco barn but I don't see Gene Stevens listed anywhere else in results nor the name Gene Ligon.

BrettEW, it was Gene Ligon. His name was spelled correctly in the preview article here.

I found this card, but don't know if it is considered the IWA or not. It would appear not, but here it is just the same. It's hard to believe the WWF brought back Bulldog Brower for a run with Bob Backlund in 1979 after he worked shows like this.

September 22. 1977 - Danville City Auditorium - Danville, VA
1. Jake Howard and Leonard King vs. Junior Adams and The Invader
2. Rick McCoy vs. Stanley Flair
3. Gregg Smith vs. Karl Von Stroheim
4. Bulldog Brower vs. Dusty Rhodes Jr.

I see now that the above card is already accounted for and is not technically an IWA card.
