Before Vince McMahon changed the landscape of professional wrestling Toronto was home to some dream matches including this title vs title matchup. Nick Bockwinkel AWA kingpin vs WWF champion Bob Backlund. This match received coverage in major newspapers and magazines including this article from the Wrestler August 1979 Apter Magazine.
I never got to see a MLW show live but followed it through the Toronto Star. I was able to clip most of the match ads and results during the time JCP was finishing up with the Tunney's and Vince and Hulkamania were taking over T.O.
