1966 in the WWWF was an exciting year because the lineup of wrestlers was large and there was new talent plus some older favorites.
Dr. Bill Miller & Prince Iaukea along with Baron Scicluna challenged Bruno the most. Others who had title shots included The Beast, Smasher Sloan, Bulldog Brower, Waldo Von Erich & Johnny Valentine.
The year started with the Miller Brothers as Tag Team Champions.
Johnny Valentine and Antonio Pugliese quickly defeated the Miller Brothers and were quite a team until Johnny Valentine turned heel.
Smasher Sloan & Baron Scicluna defeated Valentine & Pugliese when Pugliese got injured and could not continue.
Pugliese then teamed with Spiros Arion to win the titles back late in the year.
