What A Card!

Here are some clippings from a card in Shreveport from 1971 that featured a World's Heavyweight Title match with Dory Funk Jr. defending against Danny Hodge, North American Heavyweight Champion "Cowboy" Bill Watts defending against Doctor X in a cage (cyclone fence) match, U.S. Tag Champions the Spoilers defending against Tiny Smith and Luke Brown, Dusty Rhodes vs. George Gaiser, Tom Jones vs. Rip Kirby, and Sputnik Monroe vs. Chuck Karbo. The card drew nearly 6,000 spectators.
