Inside Wrestling magazine did a
story on Terry Funk winning the tournament, but it was screwed up
almost beyond recognition.
For starters, the photos in the
article, with the exception of the two you see here, were not from
the show! The storyline in this made up article focused on a tough
semi-final battle between Terry Funk and Wahoo McDaniel. Only
problem with that was Terry and Wahoo didn't wrestle each other in
the tournament! Makes you wonder about anything you read in
those magazines. The bulk of the photos were from a match Wahoo had
with Terry Funk in some other building, possibly during their match
the night before in Spartanburg SC.
The two photos that were actually from
the tournament are seen here: a photo of Terry Funk vs. Red Bastien
in the opening round, and a truncated photo of Dusty Rhodes and
Terry from their semi-final bout.
For what it's worth, the article had
Terry going through Red Bastien in the opening round (correct),
Dusty Rhodes in the quarter-final (this was actually the semi-final
match; Terry wrestled Rufus R. Jones in the quarters), Wahoo
McDaniel (never faced each other), and Paul Jones in the finals
