need exact date for a 1987 card

Post by Hisaharu Tanabe » 2007/06/14 Thu 11:13 pm

I'm trying to find out the exact date for this card:

November 1987
"NWA Pro Wrestling" & "World Wide Wrestling" taping (both aired on Nov 28, 87)
Columbia, SC @ Township Auditorium

Jimmy Valiant & Bugsy McGraw def George South & Thunderfood #1
Ricky Santana def Gary Royal
R. Steiner def Tomy Angel
U.S. Tag: Midnight Express: Lane & Eaton (champs) def R&R Express
Midnight Express def Larry Stephens & John Savage
Rutondo def David Isley (spell?)
Mighty Wilbur def Gene Ligon
Ricky Santana def Thunderfoot #1
Nelson Royal def Denny Brown
R. Steiner def George South
Powers of Pain & Ivan Koloff def Curtis Thompson, Max McGiver, & Chance McQuade

One thing confirmed was that this card did NOT take place on Nov 24th.

The reason I'm trying to find out the date is because the match in which Nelson Royal beat Denny Brown was said to be for the vacant NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title. According to "Wrestling Title Histories", Royal was awarded the title on 10/16, rather than defeating somebody for the vacant title. This is probably a new finding.
