Looks like McGraw died in 1985. I have seen a few of his matches but now it makes sense why I don't recall any after the mid 80's.

I love when the wrestlers tell the stories but it seems even when they break kayfabe some times it is total BS.

Some of the ribs I have read about over the years are just crazy.

I had kind of forgotten just how close together McGraw's match with Piper was to McGraw's death. In 1985, I was in sixth grade. I can confirm that the "Piper killed him" speculation was everywhere among fans at the time.

I always liked Ricky Steamboat. Awesome wrestler and had a great physique.

Got to meet him probably six years ago and he was really cool. This card is very tough. I have a single listed on eBay and it is intersting that it has 18 watchers.
