MOTD: Ivan Koloff vs. Bruno Sammartino
Since someone was just e-mailing me asking about this match, I figured I'd throw this up there. The WWWF didn't actually film the match at the time because it was never intended to be shown and they wanted the title change to be as low-key as possible to prevent rioting, but this is fan footage that showed up many years later with someone adding commentary themselves. WWE of course doesn't own the rights to this, which is why they never show footage in their documentaries and countdown shows and such. Plus it looks pretty crappy. But there you go, the most historic title change until that other one in 1997.
