Classic Clipping: Indian Strap Match

On this day in 1982! Loaded card!

Wahoo McDaniel and U.S. champion Sgt. Slaughter had been embroiled in a bitter feud over Sarge's U.S. title all summer. Things were coming to a head and the two were battling around the territory in a series of Indian Strap matches.

It was a big night for a house show. A loaded 7 match card, special radio sponsorship by WRNL in Richmond, and 1000 fans would receive a free poster. Not sure what that poster was, I'll see if David remembers. But a big night in Richmond for sure.

Bell time 8:15 PM! Good memories.
