 - Rich Tate

I apologize for the delays, but running Georgia Wrestling History and Peach State Pandemonium , as well as trying to maintain a career and family are keeping me from meeting many deadlines.  Luckily, I have been able to recruit some folks for the wrestling projects to assist me in being able to reduce some of the time needed to make things happen, as well as guaranteeing a better quality product rather than rushed. 

I am attempting to create these summaries to coincide with our update progression on GWH, which is currently at 1969.  As we will be updating the year 1970 in August on GWH, I have a few more weeks to catch up the summaries I am submitting to Kayfabe Memories.  I should have 1968 and 1969 to Vince very soon, then as of August, everything should begin going as planned.  You will be able to read the summaries here, and dig into the real detail at GWH. 

So, on with it… 


Tag Team wrestling continued to dominate the Georgia scene throughout 1967, as teams such as Gene and Lars Anderson, the Torres brothers, Butcher & Mad Dog Vachon, Jack Daniels and Krusher Kowalski, Louie Tillet and Alex Perez, Billy and Bad Boy Hines, Rip Hawk and Swede Hanson, Ray Gunkel and Buddy Fuller, the Gauchos, and a couple of new faces who would also make big news in singles competition – El Mongol and Oki Shikina. 

Enrique and Ramon Torres traded the Southern Tag Team Titles back and forth a few times with the Andersons during the first half of the year.  Meanwhile, the Vachons won the World Tag Team Championship from Enrique and Alberto Torres for short reign before dropping the belts to Enrique and Ramon.  Now dual title holders, Enrique and Ramon had a series of title versus title matches during their feud with the Andersons .  Lars and Gene had a two week stint as the holders of the World title version until they lost it to Enrique and Ramon on May 12. 

The Andersons soon left, but Butcher Vachon returned, this time bringing in another “brother”, Stan.  It didn’t take them long to get involved in a feud with the Torres brothers, as well as the championship scene.  They defeated Enrique and Ramon for the Southern Tag Team Title in June.  It would be three months before they would lose the belts, when Enrique and Alberto took them away for a reign that would last throughout the remainder of the year. 

The feud between the Vachons and the Torres family took an interesting turn in July.  Enrique announced he was leaving Georgia , thus vacating the World Tag Team Title he held with brother Ramon.  Amid the buildup to him leaving, a new masked man appeared on the scene called the Avenger.  After a few weeks, the Avenger was booked into a match with Butcher Vachon, and he announced he would unmask prior to the match.   

The Avenger did as promised, and turned out to be Alberto, returning to help Ramon in his battles.  This caused the Vachons to ask Mad Dog to return and assist them.  He was immediately booked into a Loser Leaves Match the following week and lost to Alberto.  In September, Stan topped Ramon in a Loser Leaves Match, and the following week under the same stipulations, Enrique returned to turn back Stan.  The following week, Enrique came out on top in another Loser Leaves Match, this time sending Butcher packing. 

In October, Oki Yama debuted in the territory, followed in November by El Lobo, another hooded heel.  Soon behind them came another hooded grappler, known as Avenger #2.  It didn’t take long for the Yama and the Avenger to be paired into a Loser Unmasks Match, whereas the Avenger came out on the losing end.  His identity was revealed to be that of Ramon Torres.  However, a week later, Mr. Wrestling won a similar match, exposing Yama as Butcher Vachon.  Lobo was also unmasked by Ramon, and turned out to be Stan Vachon. 

El Mongol debuted in Georgia in January, and was managed by “Dandy” Jack Crawford.  He began teaming with Oki Shikina, but his most success this year was while working alone.  That would change the next year, as Shikina returned and became a key player in a key program along with Mongol.  More...
