The card on July 30, 1969 featured a grudge match between former tag team partners Curtis Iaukea and Gorilla Monsoon. Five other preliminary matches took place at the Honolulu International Center before the main event. The results were as follows: Nick Bockwinkel pinned Masa Fujiwara, Ray Stevens drew with Rocky Montero.
The match between Kenji Shibuya and Dory Dixon ended in a draw.
Chief Billy White Wolf and Peter Maivia defeated the German brothers Kurt and Karl Von Steiger on a disqualification.
The tag team of Pedro Morales and Ed Francis defeated the team of Killer Buddy Austin and Ripper Collins.
The main event was for the Hawaiian Championship. Iaukea, the champion, now met his arch enemy Monsoon. The match came to a standtill when Pedro Morales and Lord Blears entered the ring. Blears announced that the winner of this match would meet Morales for his North American Championship in the near future.
(4) At this point, Monsoon attacked Morales, who was still wearing his championship belt. Monsoon slammed Pedro's head into the ring post and Morales began to bleed profusely. Iaukea, who was watching the whole thing from his corner, ran over and pushed Monsoon aside and also attacked Morales. Finally, Morales had to be carried from the ring.
The first fall came when Monsoon used a Big Splash on Iaukea, pinning him in 1:17 of the match.
The second fall went to Iaukea in 6:45 when Monsoon attempted his splash and missed. Curtis then covered and pinned him.
The match came to an end after Monsoon had a bear hug on Iaukea and in an attempt to break the hold, Iaukea sent both wrestlers through the ropes and onto the floor outside the ring. The referee started to count both wrestlers out and Monsoon was able to get up before Iaukea. As a result, Monsoon won the match and not the title, since the title cannot change hands as a result of a count out. Also, as a result of winning the match, Monsoon would meet Pedro Morales in the future for his North American title.
