    I was curious about the title win for Eric Embry and looked up Peter Vander Graling. No such person. Seems it was another “win in Rio for the Intercontinental title type of thing,” to get the title over.

    Funny, I found the same thing. I just assumed it was a one-night gimmick, or some local wrestler but your idea makes more sense
