: Bad Leroy Brown won a 20-man battle royal to win the title.
: Valiant dropped his ‘Charlie Brown’ persona and vacated the title.
: This was the final round of a tournament to determine the NWA TV champion. Dick Slater’s US title, of course, was not on the line in this match. Also note that in a semifinal encounter vs. Assassin #2, Mark Youngblood put his feet up on the middle ropes to gain the pinfall.
