On August 30, 1972, the last professional wrestling card of the summer was held at the Honolulu International Center Arena.
On the undercard, Sam Steamboat defeated Al Costello and Maddog Mayne topped Jimmy Snuka.
In a midget tag team match, The Tahiti Kid and Little Farmer defeated the team of Sky Low Low and Little Brutus.
In a match for the AWA World tag team titles Champions Nick Bockwinkel and Ray Stevens retained their titles by defeating the team of Wahoo McDaniels and Wild Fred Curry.
The match between Ed Francis and Freddie Blassie was one of the highlights of the evening. At the start of the match, Blassie was escorted to the ring by Maddog Mayne. Once in the ring, Mayne started putting a collar around Blassie's neck. This was done to prevent Francis from applying a sleeper hold on Blassie by cutting off the blood flowing to his head via the neck.
The action in this match was action from the start. During the match, Francis managed to get the collar off and as Francis was applying the sleeper hold, Blassie got loose and exited the ring. Francis seeing this went after Blassie outside the ring and applied the sleeper hold on him. As Blassie was going under, the referee rang the bell and both wrestlers were counted outside the ring and the match was declared a non-contest.
The main event was for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship with Dory Funk Jr. putting his title on the line against Handsome Johnny Barend. After each wrestler gained a fall, neither wrestler could win the third and deciding fall and time ran out and the match was declared a draw. Thus Funk retained his NWA title.
One note of interest: the outcome of this match was the fact that it was Johnny Barend's last match in Hawaii. It was rumored that Barend suffered a chest injury that ended his career in professional wrestling. Barend was scheduled to defend his North American Championship against The Sheik on October 11, 1972 but was unable to appear due to an injury. Barend never wrestled in Hawaii again.
