For the 2nd Thanksgiving show in a row, Jack Brisco defended the NWA World title against Wahoo McDaniel. The two met in a classic bout in 1974. This would be the next-to-last title defense Jack would make in the Mid-Atlantic area. The following night in Charleston he defended against Rufus R. Jones. A few weeks later, Brisco dropped the title to Terry Funk in Miami Beach, Florida.

 

The match that drew the house, however, was the United States heavyweight title re-match following the US tournament three weeks earlier. (Paul Jones still gets hot when he looks at this poster. Read Paul's comments in Reflections by Paul Jones.)

 

The grudge match between Blackjack Mulligan and Tim Woods was set up by Woods' interference in Mulligan's tournament match three weeks earlier, causing Blackjack to lose to Dusty Rhodes.
