Sullivan rose to stardom in Arizona thanks to a feuds with Cowboy Bob Ellis which filled the old Phoenix Madison Square Garden to standing room only for over a month straight. Sullivan did receive various shots at the NWA World Title during his southern run, including a main event in Mobile, Alabama, versus Terry Funk. He of course never won this title.
Sullivan had an expressed/verified dislike for Tojo Yamamoto and noted how this man would always tease the tarined bear on Gulas shows until one evening when he and Rip Tyler heard Tojo coming and unlocked the cage, letting the angry bear out and though usually tame, the bear chased his antagonist all the way out of the building.
