I always loved it when the midgets came to town. They had a great comedy routine in the ring. No matter what the card was, the midgets were always the best. They had the same athletic ability, but were so much more entertaining than many of the other matches. They have never gotten the credit they deserved. Of course midgets is a derogatory term, as these fighters were just as good as their average sized counterparts, and not less than in any way.

1986 seems about right for this event or Extravaganza! That was always the Owens word for a big event.
Brady Boone has a similar look to Billy Jack, with the dark hair and beard. He was a smaller guy, but also had a similar build and so they claimed he was Billy Jack's cousin. As I recall he wasn't here for very long, and I am not sure about his career trajectory after the Northwest.
Billy Jack Haynes started having wrestling matches in Oregon City in 1988. His promotion didn't last too long, but another promoter picked it up after a few months and I feel like this is probably from his promotion because Billy Jack is not mentioned. Pacific Coast Championship Wrestling or PCCW. I have a program scanned on another post.
Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, PNW Championship and PNW Tag Championship.This sounds like it was a great show. Greatest? I really don't know, I wasn't there!
This event is a little before my time, but it looks like a great event. This is one of many Northwest Wrestling clippings that were sent to me by a friend in the 90's. I hope to be posting lots of them in the coming weeks. I'm not sure if the dates written on them are correct. Let me know if they aren't.
