Jack...in working on future material I will be adding to Georgia Wrestling History, I am trying to get some clarification on the National Heavyweight Title.

In the fall of 1980, the title was introduced on GCW, and you were being billed as the champion, and it was mentioned that you won it from Austin Idol. However, in all of my recollections of that time frame, as well as the research we have found so far, there seems to be nothing showing that Idol had even ever been billed as the champ prior to your being billed as such, nor have I even found a match where you guys wrestled at all in that period.

My guess is that with the advent of the cable exposure (which resulted in all of their titles becoming "National" titles), as well as the move into the northern states of OH, MI, and WV, that it was simply a phantom title change.

However, I defer to you for the details if I am incorrect in my assumption. Do you recall the situation at all?
