AWA tag team Phantom title change

Postby edgehead1984 » 2005/02/27 Sun 3:24 pm

I'm reading my copy of the Canadian Pro wrestling hall of Fame book and it mentions that Karl & Kurt von Steiger defeated Paul & Mad Dog Vachon for the AWA Tag Team titles in 1971.

Has any one else heard of this story????

It was never acknowledged by the AWA.

Here's the card where it happened.

2/23/71 Portland
Kurt & Karl Von Steiger beat Mad Dog & Butcher Vachon to win AWA World Tag Title
Stan Stasiak beat Sailor White
Dutch Savage beat Les Thornton
Bobby Nichols drew Haru Sasaki
Eric Froelich drew Moose Morowski

There were at least two rematches.

3/16/71 Portland
NWA Champion Dory Funk Jr drew Lonnie Mayne
Kurt & Karl Von Steiger beat Mad Dog & Butcher Vachon dq
Pat O'Brien beat Haru Sasaki dq
Dutch Savage drew Steven Little Bear
Stan Stasiak beat Moose Morowski
Tony Borne beat Bing Ki Lee
Eric Frolich drew Bobby Nichols

3/18/71 Salem
Mad Dog & Butcher Vachon beat Kurt & Karl Von Steiger dq
Lonnie Mayne beat Dutch Savage dq
Bobby Nichols beat Moose Morowski
Bing Ki Lee drew Pat O'Brien

Now in the results I have, there's no mention of the Vachons winning the belts back.
