-- Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the first Jack Brisco vs. Dory Funk Jr. match in St. Louis at Kiel Auditorium. That night, there was a riot in front of the venue, with fans being turned away and turning over the portable ticket stands. The night proved that Brisco/Funk could draw outside of Florida. The match was a 60-minute draw. It's remembered as one of the best matches of the era.
