  Lanny and Randy would team in the Mid Atlantic with moderate success.Sometimes it's hard to recognize greatness....

The tag belts were won by Randy and Lanny in the Gulf Coast NWA Territory in 1976. Real heat occurred between rival team the British Bulldigs and the Poffo brothers. A quick exit was demanded by the promoter after the sparks exploded.

Randy always seems to draw attention. Marge Schott would have been a good villian for the former baseball player.

This is a write up frpm William Harding about his Sugar Hold escape from Bob Roop in Frankfort Kentucky.I had William over to my home in Lexington and it was great to hear the experience description from him personally . Unfortunately no video exists of this confrontation even though the cameras were in Frankfort that night filming. It is a great read and Bill even considered writing a book about the event.
