In 1979, Dory Funk Jr. and Tully Blanchard had some meetings for the Southwest title.  Was Tully still a face at this point and was Dory the bad guy chasing him or were they face v face psuedo scientific encounters?  I know Tully became a bad guy somewhere in '79 turning on Tom Jones.  

I also know later in 1981 the Funks were out for revenge for what Tully did to Terry Funk with the claw hammer incident. The Funks were top good guys at that time teaming with Wahoo and others battling Gino & Tully.  Thanks.

You are correct, Tully was the face and Dory was the heel. I attended a show where Tully wrestled Dory and being the local guy he was very well over, this made it a shocker when he turned heel. If I recall he turned on a match with Al Madril for the SW belt.

Forgot to mention by 81 Tully was the lead heel and the funks were the faces, and Tully had a savage attack on Terry. I would like to see that again.

Thanks Will.  I'm not sure, but I think the claw hammer footage or incident may have not survived.  I look for it from time to time, but get nada.  Southwest is one of those promotions that is getting passed over with time, but should not.  It has a rich history and did well in Texas with some really great stories and double crosses or angles.  Plus, most every Texas wrestling legend of the time period passed through.  
 

I found this on the KM territories page or writeups:

Al Madril was the first SWCW champion but was defeated by Tully Blanchard a short time later, at this time Tully was the main Face of the promotion. Being a hometown hero made him even more popular, he lost the belt a short time later to Dale Valentine they would exchange the belt a total of seven times. This was once of the first hot feuds in the area, after a year long run as a face Tully stunned his hometown fans by turning heel in a series of matches versus Tom Jones who had taken the title from him earlier.

SCWILL,
  What did you think about the RNR Express v The Fabulous Blondes series?  I guess Lawler had the RNR come in for a mini feud with the Blondes.  Thanks.

I think that footage does not exsists, who knows maybe one day it will pop-up. Now I saw a show from 79 that Madril talks about the heel turn of Tully. I think it was a tourney and Tully cheated in both matches to win the belt.

I liked their series of matches, of course the Blondes won the titles. But they were some entertaining matches. The R-R express was here for about 3 shows in late 83. They came back for one last show in Aug 84.

For me 1984 was the best year, the sheepherders were running wild in the area, Joe Blanchard brought in the Zambuie Express, Fabulous Ones, and the Road Warriors to battle them. Bruiser Brody was having many classic matches with Abby the butcher. I am trying to find a card i attended that was one of the best ones ever in the area.
