North American Title History 1974 - 1983
A bout by bout visual history


In May of 1974 The Stomper aka Archie Gouldie had been the N.A. Champion for Calgary's Stampede Wrestling
and appears McKigney brought him in as N.A Champ to open the season. Below is a bout by bout history of the title.

This is not a listing of every card on the tours, just those that featured Title bouts
or in some cases the champ wrestling in a tag bout or non-title bout

There was also a N.A. Title defended in upper New York state in 1974, Parisi & Stasiak among the holders,
that lineage is not included here but may overlap at the end of 1974, this lineage (hopefully) represents Ontario only
