NWA Champ Kerry Von Erich vs. Terry Gordy

In the image above, Kerry Von Erich hands the "ten pounds of gold" to referee Bronko Lubich before his NWA title defense against Terry Gordy in May 1984. Lubich knows the belt well; he was the referee who was first handed the new belt to Jack Brisco when it was introduced on July 20, 1973 in Houston, TX. 

In the video below, Kerry defends the NWA world championship against Terry Gordy in Ft. Worth, Texas during his three week reign as champion.

The match took place at a "Championship Sports" taping, the weekly two hour wrestling show that aired on KTVT-11 out of Fort Worth. The commentator is Marc Lowrance.
