1929? Damn that's old footage ;)

The Japanese were there for baba vs Abdullah and a couple of tag matches which they filmed. The Japanese continued to Minneapolis the next might where baba challenged Bock for the title and jumbo and tenryu challenged the high flyers. Don't know if they filmed those as they have never turned up but there is silent footage of baba vs. Bock.

The pic looks like Verne is taking it up the ass and Bock is just about done.

The AWA Belt looks fucking incredible here. Actually a worthy title compared with Domed Globe. Makes the WWWF title look minor league.

I was there for this one. SRO card. All the marks on the ring canvas are blood from the Abby vs Baba match which was a total bloodbath. Abby vs Baba went on just before this match.
Off hand I remember Bruiser & Gomez vs Patterson & Stevens and Brazil vs Ladd that night. Brody, Tsuruta and Tenyru there also.
