Were these 3 teaming together? I thought they were feuding....

I didn't see alot of that time frame, so I'm somewhat confused.

Considering that's Japan, I imagine it was easier than in the states to run angles where guys who normally feuded with one another somewhere teamed up elsewhere. Looks like it's just prior to a six man tag match, maybe...

Yes, they could have been teaming in Japan, or this might be one of those ceremonial type deals before a card or a tournament where all the wrestlers are in the ring at the same time, which is also common in Japan.

So long from the Sunshine State!

I'll copy this over to Jack's board and maybe next time he drops by, we'll see if he remembers the specifics.

If they worked as a team, it could have been a deal where they had the top NWA guys at the time.

harley race, dory funk jr. and jack. what a concept. in florida , heres how the concept would have played out.... 6 man tagteam match with whoever, jack would be the first to wrestle. harley and funk would have been conspiring the whole time how to throw a wrench in jacks style by, missing tags, allowing the other team to double or triple team him, and basically allowing him, to get the beatdown, and giving him the beatdown whenever the match was over. notice jack in the picture with his eyes on both of them, very smart wrestler, but what a concept

You do have to look twice to see it's Harley Race, not Dick Murdoch.

First glance I too thought it was Murdoch.

"When he's through counting his bruises, he'll revert to the farm life he left in Carbon, Alberta, when he embarked an his wrestling career. The Stomper credits Stu Hart with launching his career and adding polish to his techniques and strength to his body. He's come a long way since he left Hart's basement gym a decade ago."

1974 era "Patriot"" I can pull up a TT from that era (Bob Griffin/Bobby Hart) but I don't see them working ing Japan or on a tour anywhere with the more illustrious names.

G'day Blind Guy,

I just checked Haruo Yamaguchi's incredible Japanese Results from 1950 to 1983 posted by Steve Yohe at http://wrestlingclassics.com/.ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=10;t=004131;p=1

Haruo identifies The Patriot who wrestled for All Japan on the 4 to 30 January 1974 tour as being Bobby Hart.

Cheers!

Ed

G'day Ed and thanks! I can cross one puzzling mystery off the list thanks to you.

And good for Bobby Hart to get the trip.

G'day Blind Guy,

Bobby Hart made his Australian debut for the World Championship Wrestling promotion in 1975.

Hart returned to Australia in 1978.

Bobby was well received Down Under, whether wrestling as a babyface or a heel.

I enjoyed his matches.

Cheers!

Ed
