It appears that it's from a Louisville, KY station, so, it may be a week behind the original air date in Memphis? Anyhow, the TV Title looks to have changed hands on the 2/28/81 episode (probably 2/21/81 if it's a week behind). On that episode, Dutch Mantel defeated Koko Ware for the championship.

RIP - clawmaster

I was away for the weekend and just got back. The first thing I read on the internet was a shocking news.

As many of you probably know by now, Jim "clawmaster" Zordiani passed away on late Friday evening or early Saturday.

SLAM! Wrestling article

I can't find words to describe how thankful I am for his contributions to not only my websites but also researches and preservation of the history of pro-wrestling in general.

RIP.
