WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase d. Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka via submission with the MILLION DOLLAR DREAM to become the first ever Golden State Wrestling WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
After the match, DiBiase commented that this was the greatest title he’s “ever purchased.” When questioned further about this, he refused to comment. An interesting note though, both Greg “The Hammer” Valentine and Nikolai Volkoff were seen leaving together with big black briefcases and were later spotted dining at the very expensive Thomas Keller’s French Laundry restaurant. Rumor has it they tipped well.
