On This Day: March 27, 1988 – Clash of the Champions #1: The Man Called Sting

Sorry for missing this as I got very busy on Wednesday. Clash of the Champions Date: March 27, 1988 Location: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina Attendance: 6,000 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Jim Ross There’s quite a bit to say here. This show likely should have been called Crockett’s Revenge. Twice Vince had sabotaged Crockett’s attempt at […]

NWA World Wide Wrestling – January 5, 1985: Don’t Be Modest Dusty

NWA World Wide Date: January 5, 1985 Location: Dorton Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina Commentator: Tony Schiavone This is a show that I did an episode of before and I’m back again.

NWA World Championship Wrestling – February 15, 1986 – Magnum TA Is Awesome

NWA World Championship Wrestling Date: February 15, 1986 Location: WTBS Studios, Atlanta, Georgia Commentator: Tony Schiavone This is the flagship show for the NWA.

NWA World Wide Date: January 15, 1985 Location: Memorial Auditorium, Spartanburg, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schiavone, David Crockett This is another one of those shows that I’ll have some random but some regular reviews up of. The NWA had probably about 4-5 different shows at a time and this was one of the lower level […]

Crockett Cup 1988 – Thank Goodness This Is The Last One

Starrcade 1985 Date: November 28, 1985 Location: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina/The Omni, Atlanta, Georgia Commentators: Bob Caudle, Tony Schiavone Found this and figured it would be worth taking a look at.
