Today in History

1973 – At Showdown at Shea, WWWF Champion Pedro Morales and former champion Bruno Sammartino fought to a draw for the title. The bout went 65 minutes, when it was called a draw.

1983 – In what would turn out to be the last show for a decade, New Japan Pro Wrestling held a show at Budokan Hall in Tokyo, Japan.  WWWF Champion Bob Backlund defeated Stan Hansen by disqualification. In the show’s main event, Antonio Inoki defeated Ken Patera to retain his NWF Championship.

1999– The British Bulldog challenged Triple H for the WWF Championship on Smackdown, from Richmond, VA in the match where The Rock presented his Sliding People’s Elbow.

2003 –  In what sounds very familiar to a recent story line, Kane defeated Chris Jericho to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship.  As Kane was already a tag team champion, and was due to have another championship match in three weeks at No Mercy, it set him up to become a triple champion. Alas, it did not happen. Kane lost the tag champions a week before the PPV and the IC at the ppv to Triple H.

2007 – Low Ki defeated Arik Cannon and Roderick Strong in the finals to win the IWA Mid-South Ted Petty Invitational

2010 – Kurt Angle and Abyss met in a Steel Cage Match that ended in a no contest that aired on TNA Impact!

2018 – CHIKARA held Tooth and Claw in Philadelphia, PA.
