Blooper: Jay WHO??

Time for another wrestling blooper, this time on a poster instead of our usual newspaper clippings.

When I saw this one I literally laughed out loud. Something caught me off guard about Jay "YOUNGBLOOB."

The "B" and the "D" keys are not really close to each other on the keyboard, so not sure how this one happened!

Interesting poster in 1982 from a small community right outside Richmond VA. Funny to see Jimmy Valiant and Paul Jones teaming together given that soon would begin a feud that would last off and on for 5 years.

and Posters, too!
Also, an interesting main event of Angelo Mosca challenging Ric Flair for the NWA World title. Mosca was in during this time primarily as a participant in the ongoing NWA World Tag Team championship tournament with partner Killer Khan. So I don't normally think of him as a top singles competitor during that time period. However, that said, he was the reigning Canadian Heavyweight champion for the Toronto office, which had strong booking ties with Jim Crockett Promotions. Perhaps ol' Angelo had to come all the way to Midlothian, VA in the USA to get his well earned shot at the champ!

Jay "Youngbloob." That's one for the ages.
