The AM question ~ Ken Patera did indeed hold the Intercontinental Championship while holding the NWA Missouri Heavyweight championship as well.

For the afternoon/evening question we will look at some turns and how they all happened.

Tell me these guys individually did (or what was done to them) that made them switch from good to bad or bad to good as appropriate. Gotta get em all - important to list names as in who/whom they went after or were attacked by.

Larry Zbyszko

Peter Maivia

Jimmy Snuka

Pat Patterson

Spiros Arion

This explanation is pretty comprehensive and I agree with the guess, although for Peter Maivia I'll add in that he also became part of the Fred Blassie heel stable going forward from the angle.

Larry Zbyszko - Feeling that his mentor is casting a shadow on him, Larry challenges Bruno to a scientific match on TV.  Sammartino reluctantly agrees.  During the match, Bruno does not wrestle all out which frustrates Zbyszko to the point of breaking the rules and busting a wooden chair across the head of Sammartiino.

Peter Maivia - Feeling that he has been used since he's entered into the WWWF, Maivia attacks Arnold Skaaland and Bob Backlund during a tag match against Spiros Arion and Victor Rivera.  A few nights later, Maivia jumps Chief Jay Strongbow and leaves him during their tag team title match against the Yukon Lumberjacks at MSG.

Jimmy Snuka - After suffering verbal abuse for months from Lou Albano, Snuka gets word from Buddy Rogers that Albano had no valid contract with him and that Albano robbed all of Snuka's money.  Snuka then asks Rogers to manage him, which Rogers will accept in time.  Snuka, then, gets jumped by Albano, Fred Blassie and Ray Stevens prior to a scheduled TV match against Stevens.  The result is a busted forehead and neck injuries substain from a piledriver on the cement floor by Stevens

Pat Patterson - Lou Albano bought the contract of Patterson from the Grand Wizard, a move that Patterson was upset about due to his hatred of Albano.  During a six man tag match, Patterson was jumped by Albano and the Samoans which cemented Patterson's face turn.

Spiros Arion - After growing frustration with Jay Strongbow, which included Strongbow costing him a DQ loss against Killer Kowalski, Arion turned on Strongbow during a TV match with the Valiants. Bruno Sammartino rushed the ring to aid Strongbow, which resulted in him getting a beatdown by Arion.  Arion cemented the turn in the next couple of weeks by shredding the Chief's headress and stuffing the feathers in Strongbow's mouth

Larry Zbyszko - Larry kept telling Bruno to lose the god-damned cheap hairpiece and accept his baldness like a man. Bruno wouldn't listen so it ended up in a steel cage in Flushing.

Peter Maivia - Bob Backlund told him that only faggots play the ukelele. Maivia took exception and it ended up in a steel cage over Penn Station

Jimmy Snuka - Jimmy figured that as a face he could attract a better quality girl to eventually murder.

Pat Patterson - Captain Lou threatened to make sure that Pat would have no contact whatsoever with Tommy Rich when Tommy came into MSG for his one shot.

Spiros Arion - Was told by Vince Sr. that if he turned heel he could be the second Greek to fuck Jackie Onassis.
