This is the TV studio show for Roy Shire's promotion in the late 1970s. They taped at KTXL-40 in Sacramento. Hank Renner is the announcer. This was late in this promotion's lifespan.

Interesting match. Is it me or did it seem like Snuka had almost no charisma whatsoever? He was a seasoned 10 year vet by this time but it was like he showed nothing here. I'll say it again, Buddy Rose is in the same ballpark working wise as Ray Stevens. The guy is brilliant in the ring and virtually every move he does means something. You could see that at this point in his life Snuka was doing only oil based juice. Thick but a lot of water weight. His body was much better by the time he came to New York. Hell, even in 1990 when he was pushing 50 his body was completely incredible. Rose was actually in decent physical condition here. All in all a fun match.

I thought Shire saying Jay Youngblood while Rose saying Rick Youngblood was interesting.

Clearly this booking was a surprise to both men since they wore the same color trunks.

This match was around late aug/early Sept 1978. These two wrestled in March 1978 with similar finish but in Portland. This match was much better.

Snuka's heel turn in 1979 was the best thing that happened to him.  He was cool and dangerous at the same time.  When the fans turned him back face in late 1982, he kept some of that cool/dangerous persona with him that he used when he was a heel and it really worked.
