I just watched this:
#1027—THE DESTROYER TAPE #3
--THE DESTROYER VS DICK MURDOCH (5-6-78)
--THE DESTROYER & JUMBO TSURUTA
VS (5-26-78)
BILLY ROBINSON & ARWIN SMITH
--THE DESTROYER & JUMBO TSURUTA
VS (6-1-78)
BILLY ROBINSON & MARIO MILANO
--SHOHEI BABA & THE DESTROYER
VS (6-10-78)
ARWIN SMITH & MARIO MILANO
(PWF US TITLE)
--THE DESTROYER VS MIL MASCARAS 2/3 FALLS (TITLE CHANGE)(8-18-78)
--THE DESTROYER & JUMBO TSURUTA
VS (8-31-78)
MOOSE MOROWSKI & RANDY TYLER

Dan---You did a great job on the 8-18-78 title change with Dick vs Mil. You can see everything in the first two falls now. It has roll marks & some noise, but the picture doesn't roll & it's very watchable. All mat work. I'm very happy with it. The 3nd fall is perfect. Thanks...you made an old man happy. I didn't think it could be done. Please send it everywhere.--Yohe

I will spread the word.

Glad you enjoyed it. I have been converting old vhs
tapes for about 16 years now, and have a trick or two
up my sleeve. :-)

--THE DESTROYER SPECIAL (6-14-79)
--SHOHEI BABA VS THE DESTROYER

I was really disappointed in this. Didn't remember my copy being so bad. Maybe it got worst laying around for 20 years.--Yohe

Let me see what i can do. As tapes age, they will degrade, but i can double check for you.

Just work on the match with Baba. The clips of the Rikidozan & Toyonobori matches isn't worth it.---Yohe

I reconverted the Baba vs. Destroyer portion of the special.

Video keeps going in and out, regardless of which VCR I play it on.

There are some streaks on the screen, which means the videotape was probably dirty when your physical copy was made.

I knocked down the audio hiss as much as I could, using just the left side audio feed.

Looking at the first conversion I did for you, this new conversions does not appear to be improved at all.

I do have some tricks up my sleeve though. I might be able to track down another version of this match.

Stay tuned!

The Destroyer twice wrestled Bob Backlund for the WWF World Title. The first was a draw (DCOR) in Toronto on Jan. 13, 1980, and the second was on March 1, 1982 in Montreal (a loss). To me it seems a guy who wrestled for the WWF Title is in the WWF.---Yohe

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a fantastic Destroyer promo on Disc 1 with him in an empty arena in an All Japan ring, challenging Rikidozen to a match since they were 1-1-1. I won't spoil the ending.

I can upload the new matches if that makes it easier to watch.
