  25. This obscure and difficult-to-find match has attained a near-legendary status on Titans. I loved it, some other people hated it. It is notable for a number of reasons: 1. It took place at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, which is a completely unique setting for this time frame. It's really rare to see footage from outside of the TV (Allentown / Hamberg), MSG, Philly or sometimes Boston or the Cap Centre. I have read around about this, and in the Summer of 79, the WWF ran a series of live broadcasts from Atlantic City, which aired on a local cable channel (one guy says a station called "Sportschannel") at 8pm or 9pm in 79. The reasons for the existence of this footage -- as in why they did this, why live as opposed to a taping, and why for only that couple of weeks -- are ... mysterious. 2. Gorilla Monsoon is on commentary, which is also really unusual for this time. I believe it is actually his DEBUT as an announcer. Vince fronted the TV typically. Monsoon would not start on MSG and Philly shows until 1982. So it really is random that he is in the booth here in 79. Monsoon calls it "Championship Wrestling", but as far as we know this did not air on that show. It may have been a pilot or trial run for a new live show. 3. This is a chance to see Andre in a house show environment go long against lesser opponents. It is about 28 minutes. He plays FIP at times for Scicluna and Valiant(!!), which is nuts. 4. Also a chance to see Baron Scicluna outside of a 5-minute MSG opener squash, and he actually gets some time in on offense. I don't think he nor Jerry Valiant (underrated) have many matches that go this long on tape. 5. Early team up for the Mega Bucks! I have uploaded it on discrete request. This is a bit of a "gem" in my view. I mean even if you don't like the match (which I do), there's so much other unusual stuff about this match that it is worth a look. I love the Steel Pier setting, your "smoky arena" right there.
