The Classic Wrestling Match of the Week has returned to Vortex Effect as part of Classics Appreciation Wednesday. Each Wednesday, a classic wrestling match will get the spotlight. This week’s Match of the Week sees Stan Stasiak (managed by The Grand Wizard) challenge Pedro Morales for the WWWF Championship.
This championship match took place on August 27, 1973 from the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Smith’s Sentiment: This is a good old-school WWWF match. If you haven’t watched the match yet, then this is not the match where Stan Stasiak won the championship. On this night in the Garden, the match technically went to a draw but Pedro was declared the winner via “majority decision” (yes, wrestling did sometimes end matches this way). Morales would lose the title to Stasiak a few months later on December 1st in Philadelphia, PA.
