Clawmaster, is that to say that the opponent is Backlund?


Also, found this one in 1983:

02/11    Pittsburgh, PA        lost to Bob Backlund (WWF World champion)

I have this listed as a Texas Death Match. This is mirrorred on Cawthon's site:

WWF @ Pittsburgh, PA - Civic Arena - February 11, 1983
Pete Sanchez pinned Charlie Fulton
SD Jones pinned Johnny Rodz
Salvatore Bellomo pinned Baron Mikel Scicluna
Tony Garea pinned Swede Hanson
Chief Jay Strongbow defeated Mr. Fuji via disqualification when Fuji threw salt into his opponent's eyes
The Wild Samoans defeated Eddie Gilbert & Curt Hennig
Big John Studd defeated Jules Strongbow via submission with a backbreaker
Ray Stevens defeated Pedro Morales via count-out
Rocky Johnson defeated Superstar Billy Graham via disqualification
Jimmy Snuka pinned Buddy Rose
WWF World Champion Bob Backlund pinned WWF IC Champion Don Muraco in a Texas Death Match


As a side note, Muraco was doing a lot of matches (as IC Champ) vs. Backlund around this time. I've never really found much info as to what title(s) were/n't on the line. Does anybody have any info on this?

Ron, that'd be great if you can verify the Dec. 14, 1981 match. I'll shoot you an e-mail 2 weeks today to let you know.
