For Paul Jones, Number One was a lot more than a ring name. It was an accurate description of his standing as one of the premiere wrestlers of the 70s and early 80s.

Jones was a leading main eventer in Florida and Georgia. In Florida, he was one of the few wrestlers to have a winning record against Jack Brisco. He is the only wrestler to simultaneously hold Florida's two major championship titles, the Florida heavyweight championship and the Southern heavyweight championship. He won the Florida title belt four times and threw it off the bridge once. He won the Florida television title twice. He held the Georgia state heavyweight championship. He beat NWA World heavyweight champion Dory Funk Jr., by pinfall in a non-title match.

In the Mid-Atlantic region, he is a legend. When the top stars in the history of Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling are discussed, Paul Jones' name is always at the top of the list. Seven-time NWA World tag-team champion with four different partners, two-time United States heavyweight champion, two-time Mid-Atlantic heavyweight champion, four-time Mid-Atlantic tag-team champion, there isn't a star that came through the Carolinas that Paul Jones doesn't have a victory against.

Paul talks about winning the US title and many of his other accomplishments in his Real Audio Interview on Wrestling Classics.
