Man, there are some solid cards on that loop. Kerry Von Erich & Bruiser Brody as Texas Tag Champs will be very tough to beat!

what date did your champions win the belts?

Uh, who knows, they just started out that way? I can make up dates. Also, David is the Texas Heavyweight Champion. He was just in tags this week to help set up Snuka and Orndorff.

Just check their wiki and go along with this if you wanna stay as close as possible to the real thing

Yeah, that's how I landed on David, who is my least favorite Von Erich. Oh well. The others, I couldn't just name with champs out of the territory, and I didn't want to immediately have tournaments, so BAM! champs appeared out of thin air.

Interesting! And yet, many consider David to have been the best out of the Von Erichs, which of course, we never had the opportunity to find out because of his tragic passing.

I checked on wrestlingdata and got The Texas & the Tag belts and the brass knuckles started on 3/13/81.

A ton of fun cards....I like all the tag matches and I always marked out for Brody and Kerry... such a fun mega team. I am hoping to see more from Gino and Tully along the way.  Also going to be interesting to see where David and Kevin fit in the scheme of everything. I don't know as much about the Von Erichs at this point in 1980 so its fun to see how you're using them.

Great results.  I especially would have loved to have seen Snuka & Orndorff vs. The Von Erich Brothers.  The thought of Paul Orndorff in his prime mixing it up with Kerry is very appealing. Now that's fantasy booking.
