  1. I always thought with this wss the jake roberts story on how he discovered the DDT where he slipped and botched a front face lock…opponent helped the fall took the bump and called the pin…a legend was born out of a botched and a wet ring (so says jake i know it was used in japan for a while before jake)

  2. Regarding Ladd putting over Chavo in Los Angeles, a preliminary wrestler at the time named Rick Thompson told me a story years ago relating to this. Thompson was in the locker room that night, and according to him, there was a discussion with the wrestlers in the locker room about trying to get Chavo over (I'm assuming that promoter Mike Labell was initiating this discussion). Then Ladd volunteered to put Chavo over, which came across as a shock to the others there.
