Will have to dig up the tape/DVD but I went to a card on the 4th of July in 1993.

Here is what I remember from memory.

Tacoma WA: July 4, 1993 McCord Air Force Base a: 1,200
Bushwhackers beat Col. DeBeers & Tim Flowers
Greg Valentine beat Koko B. Ware
Don Juan beat Buddy Wayne

There was more to it, but I can't recall the entire card or if that's the right card. Parts of it are fuzzy.

7/4/75 Houston
Al Madril won a 16 man two ring battle royal
Billy Graham & Steve Strong & John Tolos beat Al Madril & Jose Lothario & Geoff Portz
Brass Knuckles Match
Mad Dog Vachon drew Terry Funk
Gran Markus beat Billy Howard
Jos Leduc beat Frankie Hester
Grizzly Smith beat Gordon Nelson
Superstar Billy Graham beat Tiger Conway

There is a interesting thing about this card that is over looked,and not many know about.  No it is not that Billy Graham wrestled 3 times.  He has done that a few times.
It was the semi final event of that night.   The 6 man tag match that featured Graham. 
Billy Graham & Steve Strong & John Tolos beat Al Madril & Jose Lothario & Geoff Portz
The tag match was held in both rings at once.  A pair of wrestlers battled in each ring, with the 3rd man of each team able to tag into either ring where needed.

I do not think any one else ever did a 6 man tag match in two rings with 4 people wrestling and and the remaining wrestler on each team could tag into either ring.  Another first for Houston.

I didn’t know Butch Reed was in World Class in July of ‘86. I thought he went from Kansas City straight to the WWF.
