Post Show Notes
--I request and receive a working agreement with All-Japan Pro Wrestling. They have a solid roster with some workers that I would like to have but since I’m regional and they are bigger, those workers would consider AJPW a priority over me.
--Masked Superstar ends his three-match deal with us. He had 2 wins and 1 loss. Back to Georgia for him.
--Mid-South Wrestling did not re-sign Bill Dundee so that leaves us as his only employer.
--Roddy Piper is the new Pacific Northwest Champion, defeating Billy Jack Haynes in Butte, Montana. It is his third reign as PNW Champion.
