Terry Funk with the NWA belt on Macon, Georgia TV

This match takes place on "Macon Championship Wrestling" in 1976. The opponent is Irvin "Rip" Smith. The host at the desk is Gordon Solie. The ring announcer (who would later take over hosting duties on the Macon show) is Jim Carlisle. The referee is Ronnie West.

From a post on the video page: "Smith was an early tag team partner for Ted DiBiase, and I've heard DiBiase credited Smith as the person he credited his power slam after. Smith also used the figure-four as a finisher."
