  1. Are you sure that today is Angelo Mosca’s birthday? My sources, including Online World of Wrestling, indicate that it is MARCH 13. The only place I see February 13 is Wikipedia, which is not necessarily reliable.

    One additional birthday: Baby Doll (49).

    Also one more title change: 1973 Dennis Stamp & Bull Bullinski def. Yasu Fuji & Chati Yokouchi for the TSW United States Tag Team Title
