I just watched the MSG 4-21-1980 card on the Youtubes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1O9HhBCBcn4&list=WL&index=6&t=0s

Greg Gagne & Steamboat & Youngblood are on the card.

Patera pins Patterson to win the IC belt, but Pat has his leg on the ropes.  Patera is declared the new champ.


Later Finkle announces an upcoming card and it's announced Patera IC Champ vs. Backlund WWF Champ in a Death Match.

I thought this seemed odd.  Was the title change overturned or did they do a match featuring both champs?

Ken Patera's Intercontinental Title victory stood. Babyfaces rarely if ever did clean jobs in the WWWF/WWF of that era, so when a pinfall loss by a good guy occurred, there was typically something screwy about it to give the guy who lost an out while making the heel winner seem like real scoundrel.

Backlund and Patera went to a draw at MSG 1/21. The return on 2/18 featured Patterson as guest referee as Backlund beat Patera by COR.

3/24 MSG saw Backlund b. Sika and Andre & Patterson b. Patera & Duncum.

Patera won the I-C belt on 4/21 and the Texas Death Match was 5/19.

I also found it odd that they waited three months to do the blowoff at MSG. I suppose they wanted to give Patera a big win heading into the TDM, hence the I-C title change.

It wasnt that odd considering March and April featured Bruno vs Larry as the main event.

And this is the correct answer. Bruno vs. Larry all by itself would have sold out MSG for at least two months building up to the outdoor show. This is why Elder was able to get away with weak Backlund title defenses against the individual Samoans. Plus the added luxury of having elite workers in Patera and Patterson made early 1980 a very interesting time.

This is the Patera Patterson match as telecast on WDCA TV Channel 20 out of Washington, DC.  It's hilarious because the Wizard and Patera are doing commentary over it with Vince saying all kinds of outrageous things.
