CARDS AND RESULTS

DeMarco & the Assassins (01) (Assassin #1 (01) & Assassin #2 (01)) > Georgia Heavyweight Title Match: Buddy Colt* over Freddie Blassie at 18:00 to retain the title /
Notes: Fuller substituted for El Medico in the match against Grimaldo. Homer O’Dell managed Colt and Von Stroheim. Colt had been the reigning Georgia Heavyweight
Champion since he went over Nick Bockwinkel on September 4, 1970, in Atlanta. The program for this card shows that “Atlanta TV Wrestling”, hosted by Ed Capral, has
moved to a new time slot on Channel 11 each Saturday from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. It was reported that Bobo Brazil would be wrestling in Atlanta on October 9, 1970. Shane
participated in an autograph session for fans.

October 3, 1970 (Saturday) – Atlanta, GA – WQXI Studios (Paul Jones (01) – Promoter / Georgia Championship Wrestling) > Bobby Shane over Cisco Grimaldo > the
Assassins (01) (Assassin #1 (01) & Assassin #2 (01)) over Eduardo DeLynch & El Mongol > Paul DeMarco over Karl Von Stroheim / Notes: This was taped for the
“Atlanta TV Wrestling” television program hosted by Ed Capral. Homer O’Dell managed Von Stroheim.

October 3, 1970 (Saturday) Notes: The “Columbus Championship Wrestling” program moved from WTVM Channel 9 to WRBL Channel 3 on this date, with Jim Carlisle
as the new host, replacing Jim Koger of WTVM. It was reported that when WTVM moved to a new location, the feed from the Columbus Sports Arena was not strong
enough, so Fred Ward and Ralph Freed negotiated a deal with WRBL to carry the matches. Carlisle, who had no prior experience with the wrestling business, had also
worked with WTVM previously, and at one time during the late 1960s hosted the highest rated local program in Columbus. Dubbed “Blast Off with V-Man”, Carlisle,
working as the title character, the show had a science fiction theme, with the V-Man urging “peace to the universe”.

October 6, 1970 (Tuesday) – Macon, GA – Macon Coliseum (Fred Ward – Promoter / Georgia Championship Wrestling) > Tim Tyler and Pepe Gomez went to a draw >
Bob Armstrong over Skandor Akbar by disqualification > Bobby Shane & Kevin Sullivan over Mr. Ito (01) & the Great Ota > No Time Limit Match: El Mongol over Buddy Colt
/ Notes: It was reported the purse for the Mongol-Colt match was $1,500. Homer O’Dell managed Colt and Akbar.

October 7, 1970 (Wednesday) – Columbus, GA – Columbus Municipal Auditorium (Fred Ward – Promoter / Georgia Championship Wrestling) > Robert Fuller and Mr. Ito
(01) went to a draw > Eduardo DeLynch over Cisco Grimaldo > Skandor Akbar & Kubla Khan over Bob Armstrong & Kevin Sullivan > Georgia Heavyweight Title Match:
Buddy Colt* over Bobby Shane two falls to none to retain the title > Columbus Heavyweight Title Match: Bill Dromo* and Paul DeMarco went to a draw at one fall each /
Notes: Homer O’Dell managed Akbar. Armstrong was in Shane’s corner for his match against Colt. The Dromo-DeMarco match was called a draw in the third fall when
referees Charlie Smith and Leon Ogle disagreed on which man re-entered the ring first on a ten count as they both entered just as the count reached ten. As a result, the
Columbus Heavyweight Title was held up pending a rematch on October 14, 1970. It is unclear as to how Dromo came to be recognized as champion. The last
reference we have shows tournament matches on July 22, 1970, in Columbus in what appears to have been a process to name the inaugural champion, but no results
have been found. Further, there is a note in the program for this card that Dromo had won the title in a tournament in September 1970, so it is unclear if the July matches
began a tournament that wasn’t completed until sometime in September.
