    Welcome to the site.

    I think it was just a marketing tool to sell the match. I think we'll see both wrestle again, Triple H more often than Undertaker. We'll probably not see Undertaker again until next year's WM.

    I'll see your Mighty Igor and raise you Harley Race. If it's out there, I'd like to see WWE run some of the regional wrestling shows from whatever eras they have on the Network or on that online classics service they have.

    I don't think WWE owns any St. Louis territory wrestling footage.

    I've heard conflicting reports. There isn't a lot of St. Louis stuff around, so far as I've heard. When Sam Muchnick retired in the early 1980s, he sold to Central States (Bob Geigel in KC). Geigel sold to WWE in the mid-1980s so if there were videos it could've been part of the package. BUT, Larry Matysik, who was the announcer for Wrestling at the Chase (St. Louis wrestling), released 12 volumes of matches from the 1960s through the 1980s. So, who owns what is anyone's guess.

    Vince probably wasn't that concerned with buying up territorial libraries in the '80s.

    True enough. I just hope that if there is stuff out there, someone puts it on DVD or on the Internet.

    Welcome to our forum, don't be afraid to come back if you have any more questions or concerns.
    You see, I come from a highly-educated university, so when I come and post on this message board, I gotta dumb myself down.

    Didn't he go by The Blond Bombshell earlier in his career? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    No, you're correct. He did go by "The Blond Bomber".
