The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac - Chapter 16 (Q3 1963)

Welcome to Chapter 16 of The McGuirk/Watts Wrestling Almanac, an in-depth data-driven look at the wrestling territory run by Leroy McGuirk (and later, Bill Watts). The territory is most commonly known as Tri-State Wrestling and/or Mid-South Wrestling, though neither of those names were actually used until September 1979 when Watts split from McGuirk.

Each chapter covers a three-month period of time and will list our exclusive statistics:

1) SPOT (Statistical Position Over Time) Ratings, which measure a wrestlers average position on the cards
2) FEUD (Frequent Encounters Using Data) Scores, which measure the frequency and breadth of a series of matches between the same wrestlers (or teams)
In addition, we list the advertised lineups for all known house shows in the territory during the time period, an index of newcomers and other wrestlers (special attractions, women, midgets, etc) that passed through the territory, and a match-by-match, town-by-town recap of at least one feud during the quarter.

THE McGUIRK/WATTS WRESTLING ALMANAC
CHAPTER 16 (Q3 1963)


NEW TO THE TERRITORY THIS QUARTER
(wrestlers either making their first-ever appearance as a regular in this territory, their first appearance since Sep 1959, or appearing in a significantly different role/gimmick than when they were here previously)

BOBBY FIELDS – To even attempt to accurately trace the Fields’ family tree in wrestling would be a major undertaking. His immediate family includes fellow wrestlers Don Fields, Johnny (Wayne) Fields, Lee Fields, Ricky Fields and promoter Virgil “Speedy” Hatfield. They are legitimate members of the Hatfield family of Hatfields & McCoys fame. And they are related by marriage to the Welch/Fuller wrestling clan. Bobby (who also appears to have wrestled as Luke Fields in some places) spent most of his career bouncing back-and-forth between Gulf Coast and the Gulas territory.

JERRY KOZAK – The Kozak wrestling family tree is much easier to list than the Fields’. There was Jerry and his older brother Nick. Jerry had a background in gymnastics while Nick had done some boxing, wrestling and bodybuilding as a youth. A Slam Wrestling article on Jerry has the following quote from Dusty Rhodes: “Ah, the Kozaks. I remember them fondly … They were heroes of mine. I wouldn’t tell them that, but I looked up to them. They kind of helped me out a lot, guiding me along.”

JIM OSBORN – Sometimes billed as Jim and sometimes as Paddy, this was Osborn’s first stint as a regular in the territory, but it would be far from his last. He became a regular in the late ‘60s, often teaming with Jerry Miller. After wrestling in the AWA as the masked partner of Doctor X (Dick Beyer), he brought the Doctor X gimmick to this territory in 1971 and had a huge run as a heel and, later, as a babyface.

ROCKET MONROE – There were two wrestlers billed as “Rocket Monroe” over the years. I believe this was the first of the two, William Francis Fletcher. He was managed here by “younger brother” Jet Monroe, who was the real-life brother of Rocket’s storyline brother Sputnik. The second Rocket, Maury High, began using that name in 1966 as best I can tell.

SLIM GARRETT & WILLIE GARRETT – The latest incarnation of the Scufflin’ Hillbilles team here consisted of Slim & Willie Garrett. Slim had previously been billed as Cousin Slim and often managed an earlier version of the team. Garrett, also known as Billy Garrett, was later known as a member of various masked tag teams with partners including Dick Dunn and Jim Starr.

-----

RETURNING TO THE TERRITORY THIS QUARTER

Bill Watts, Corsica Joe, Mario Galento, Mighty Bolo (several different wrestlers portrayed this role over the years; my best guess is that Jerry Usher was under the hood this time around), Mike Clancy and Mr Sasaki

OTHER WRESTLERS NOT LISTED IN THE SPOT RATINGS

NATIONALLY KNOWN STARS

Danny Hodge, Dick the Bruiser and Pat O’Connor

Hodge came in from the Pacific Northwest for a week in August, teaming with Jerry Kozak to face Great Bolo & various partners. Dick the Bruiser and Pat O’Connor wrestled one another on July 10th in New Orleans; this was the second show over a few week period in New Orleans that used talent from the McGuirk office plus a couple of outside names on top.

Here are the FEUD Scores the quarter.


ANATOMY OF A FEUD

Here’s a look at the feud between Bill Watts & Jerry Kozak and the Great Bolo & Mighty Bolo, looking at all of the known matches between them with results and stipulations noted where available. The matches are arranged chronologically by city, so you can easily see which cities had multiple matches between them. Keep in mind that some newspapers didn't list details, so just because a match isn't specified as a title match, we don't necessarily know for a fact that it was non-title and the same can apply for stipulation bouts.

In looking at the FEUD Score chart above, Bill Watts and Great Bolo were on opposite sides of matches frequently during the quarter. Occasionally in singles bouts, but mostly in tag team bouts with various partners. Here, we’re going to focus solely on the matches between Watts & Kozak and Great & Mighty Bolo. When Mighty Bolo started in early September, he & Great Bolo were billed as US Tag Team champions. An article in the Tulsa newspaper says they won the titles from Louie Tillet & Jan Madrid “in Texas last winter”. I believe this was a fictitious title change, as I don’t have records of Tillet & Madrid being a team during that time frame (they did team here earlier in 1962). It should be noted that a newspaper article in Little Rock in mid-September claimed the fictitious change happened “several weeks ago”, which also was impossible based on the whereabouts of the wrestlers.

TULSA
9/2/63 Watts & Kozak beat Great & Mighty to win the US Tag Team titles in a match with two referees

OKLAHOMA CITY
9/6/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak
9/13/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak

SPRINGFIELD
9/11/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak to win the US Tag Team titles in a match with two referees; the title change in Tulsa was acknowledged here and Watts & Kozak went into the match billed as champs
9/18/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak in a US Tag Team titles match with two referees; Watts & Kozak forfeited their purse in exchange for title shot

WICHITA FALLS
9/12/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak “to win the US Tag Team titles”; it would appear the title change the night before in Springfield was ignored
9/19/63 Watts & Kozak vs Great & Mighty in a US Tag Team title match; Watts & Kozak forfeited their purse in exchange for title shot

LITTLE ROCK
9/17/63 Great & Mighty beat Watts & Kozak in a US Tag Team title match (here it appears that the switcheroo to Watts & Kozak and then back to the Bolos was completely ignored)

FORT SMITH
10/9/63 Watts & Kozak beat Great & Mighty by reverse decision; Mighty Bolo pinned Watts in the third fall after Great Bolo hit Watts “in the back of the head with an unidentified object”. After the match, the Bolos continued to stomp Watts until referee Leo Voss reversed the decision
