speaking with Solie, he was attacked and injured by Shane. Up until that time, Shane had consistently refused to wrestle on television,
and felt he was tricked into the match. By the end of the program, Jones announced to Solie that he had suspended Shane indefinitely. It
was announced that Jones had suspended Harley Race for attacking referee Leo Garibaldi on August 10, 1973.

Columbus soon.

August 17, 1973 (Friday) – Atlanta, GA – Atlanta Municipal Auditorium [P] (Paul Jones (01) and Lester Welch – Promoters / Georgia

Heavyweight Title Match: Mr. Wrestling #2 (01) over Bill Watts* by disqualification; Watts retained the title / Notes: The Lumberjack
substituted for Winston to team with Spears in the match against Gibson. Winston had claimed he had a cold, but wound up interfering in
the match. J.C. Dykes managed the Infernos. Mr. Kleen was the special referee for the Torres and Orton, Jr.-Infernos match. Kleen
attacked Dykes during the match, bringing it to a chaotic end. The Infernos had been the reigning Georgia Tag Team Champions since
they went over Orton, Jr., and Wrestling #2 on August 4, 1973, in Atlanta. The winner of the Watts-Wrestling #2 match was to earn a future
shot at the NWA World Heavyweight Title. Watts was disqualified when he threw referee Leo Garibaldi into the path of a knee lift from
Wrestling #2, knocking him unconscious. Initially, this match was to be Watts versus Tim Woods, but Woods’ injury suffered at the
hands of Bobby Shane on August 11, 1973, forced Jones to change the match. Watts had been the reigning Georgia Heavyweight
Champion since he went over Woods on July 21, 1973, in Atlanta. The program for this card featured a full page regarding the
suspension of Shane, with a “paid advertisement� by Shane Enterprises, featuring a petition fans could send to the NWA to
reinstate him, as he felt he was treated unfairly. It also featured the first column by Les Thatcher that became a staple in future programs,
titled “Wrestler’s Eye View�. It was announced that Harley Race, who Jones had suspended on August 10, 1973, for attacking
Garibaldi the night before, had also been suspended throughout the nation by Sam Muchnick for his actions.

Jack Welch (02) & Roy Lee Welch over Bobby Duncum & Stan Vachon / Notes: This was taped for the “Georgia Championship
Wrestling� television program hosted by Gordon Solie and Les Thatcher. It was announced on this episode that Bill Watts had been
stripped of the Georgia Heavyweight Title pending a rematch against Mr. Wrestling #2 (01) on August 31, 1973. The reason given was
that it was suspected Watts deliberately got himself disqualified in a title match against Wrestling #2 on August 17, 1973. Watts had
been the reigning champion since he went over Tim Woods on July 21, 1973, in Atlanta. Watts joined Solie and Thatcher to respond to
the allegations, claiming referee Leo Garibaldi was clumsy and simply fell into a knee lift from Wrestling #2, rather than Watts pushing
him, as Garibaldi and Wrestling #2 claimed.

Champion since he went over Bill Dromo on August 8, 1973, in Columbus. Following the Colt-Armstrong match, Ward held up the
Southeastern Heavyweight Title, pending a rematch at a later date. It is unclear as to how Colt came to be recognized as Southeastern
Heavyweight Champion. The last reference we have shows Choo-Choo Lynn defending the title against Black Monster #1 on January 7,
1964, in Macon. Abdullah Farouk managed the Sheik. The Sheik had been the reigning United States Heavyweight Champion as
recognized by the Detroit, MI, office, since he went over Johnny Valentine on July 21, 1973, in Detroit. J.C. Dykes managed the Infernos. It
is unclear as to how the Infernos became recognized as Southeastern Tag Team Champions. The last reference we have shows

be taken to the hospital for minor injuries. J.C. Dykes managed the Infernos. It was announced that Terry Funk would be wrestling on the
card on August 31, 1973. It was also announced that Freddie Blassie was being sent by the NWA to be the special referee for the
Georgia Heavyweight Title Wrestling #2-Bill Watts match on August 31, 1973. Watts had been the reigning Georgia Heavyweight
Champion since he went over Tim Woods on July 21, 1973, in Atlanta, but the title had been stripped from him on August 18, 1973,
following a match between the two on August 17, 1973. The program for this card featured an open letter from Shane Enterprises,
expressing disappointment in his “loyal subjects� for minimal response on the petition he provided fans to send to the NWA to
push for his reinstatement. Leo Garibaldi was credited as being a referee on this card. Earlier in the day, an article appeared in the
Atlanta Constitution about a pending lawsuit whereas the Super Gladiator was pressing charges against Jack Brisco for slander and
harassment. The article exposed the Gladiator’s real name, referring to him as both Ricky Hunter and Charles Sprott, his legal name
used in the documents.
