  • Sports Review Wrestling magazine, published by Kappa Publishing Group's Victory Sports arm, publishes its first fan-voted year-end awards. The awards honored the top wrestlers, tag teams, managers and matches of the preceding 12 months. The first Wrestler of the Year was Pedro Morales, while the first match of the year was a battle royal in Los Angeles, which Bruno Sammartino won. Starting in 1979, the annual honors would be published in Victory Sports' flagship publication Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine. These year-end issues also included a capsule of some of the most memorable events, matches, feuds and milestones from January to (typically) mid-November, along with a listing of wrestlers who passed away during the past year
