Looks more like a newspaper office or TV newsroom. The Mid-South "office" was Watts' house/garage.

Bayou Boogie confirmed that is the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Orndorff and Ladd paid a couple of reporters a visit after they reported that wrestling is *GASP* fake.

That would be Rex & King and I believe King had visa problems and was the reason he was replaced in the team

King was the original Brian Christopher, getting caught at the Canadian Border with drugs.  That ended his time in the WWF.  I believe he continued to wrestle in the Maritimes and maybe elsewhere in Canada as Sailor White after this happened.  He was replaced by Moondog Spot, while Rex later became Demolition Smash until every fan in every arena for two weeks was chanting "Moondog" at him and they replaced him with Barry Darsow.  Why the fans didn't chant "Kruschev" at him is beyond me but it must be that WWF fans of the day didn't have TBS.  Because the tattoos gave it away even before you see the face.  Rex ended up becoming Detroit Demolition down in Alabama and was booked as a monster.  Also, Captain Lou was in his late 30s there even though he looks to be about 56.  Some of these guys must've just beat the shit out of their livers and couldn't perform anymore.  Johnny Valiant was another guy, he was younger than Valentine and Beefcake when he managed them, but looked and walked like an old man.  At least Blassie had a reason to limp around, he WAS old and did beat the shit out of his body.

Not sure when this was taken but we have a couple that have since passed away. Great pic filled with legends, with Bruno and Backlund in the center.
