Same here.  Huge fan of the Baron, win, lose or draw.  Does any footage older than the Ali/Monsoon match exist?

Not sure if I've seen that particular match before, thanks

Watching Valentino here is like watching Kramer from Seinfeld wrestle

Also, is the ref the same Eddie Creachman who would later manage The Sheik?

I know he wrestled in both Canada, San Francisco and Austrailia in the 50s and 60s; however, didn't his WWWF/WWF run take place from 1965 - 1983??

He returned to the WWF in May 1975 and left in August 1983. I think from July 1972 - April 1975, he only worked dates in Western PA/Eastern OH/upstate NY
