Just wondering if anyone can clear something up for me. When I first got into wrestling, it was in 1983 or 1984. The first match I saw was Paul Orndorff (face) against some jobber called either Mr. X, Mr. Tiger, or Tiger X, Tiger Mask, Tiger Lee, or something like that. He was sorta chubby and a heel. Does anyone know who I'm talking about? I looked it up on google but was unable to find an answer.

Thanks in advance if you're able to clear this up for me.

It's possibly Tiger Mask (the original, Satoru Sayama), since he was the Junior Heavyweight Champion in Japan for awhile. He jumped to the UWF in 1984 and stopped being called Tiger Mask. Either way, I'd imagine that the WWF would use international stars as enhancement talent.

Championship Wrestling
weekend of 13 July 1985
Mid-Hudson Civic Center
Poughkeepsie, NY

Paul Orndorff defeated Mr. X
Pedro Morales & Lanny Poffo defeated Barry O. & J.A. Rizzo
The Missing Link defeated Jim Young
George "the Animal" Steele defeated Jerry Adams
Terry Funk defeated Mario Mancini
Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo defeated The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff to win the WWF Tag-Team Championship

Mr. X was Danny Davis.

EDIT: And this is another reason why I am the admin and the two above me are just Canadian dudes who post too much.

WOW! Thanks a lot for the info. That's just amazing you were able to pinpoint the episode. It's funny to read the names of jobbers from back then and recall how many matches I've seen of theirs.

I sincerely doubt that any big names are going to be in the battle royal if they have other matches that night. This is going to be the thing to get as many faces on the show as possible.
