CWA Championship Wrestling Date: January 1, 1983 Location: WMC-TV Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Lance Russell, Dave Brown It’s been awhile since I’ve done anything from this company, but it’s the Memphis company that eventually merged with WCCW into the USWA.

USWA Championship Wrestling – February 2, 1991: Lawler Gets Fabulous

USWA Championship Wrestling Date: February 2, 1991 Location: USWA Television Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentator: Dave Brown After Monday’s show, the tag titles are vacant. There was some kind of a controversial finish in the Fabs vs. Lawler/Jarrett and we’ll have a rematch two days after this show. Gee, I wonder if they’ll have Lawler talk […]

USWA Championship Wrestling Date: January 19, 1991 Location: USWA Television Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentator: Dave Brown Here’s another show from this company and for some reason this one is significantly shorter, almost twenty minutes worth.

WCW Power Hour Date: January 5, 1990 Location: Peoria Civic Center, Peoria, Illinois Commentator: Jim Ross This is yet another show that I have.

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

Smokey Mountain Wrestling TV Date: May 21, 1994 Location: Knoxville Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, Tennessee Commentator: Les Thatcher Ah Smokey Mountain Wrestling. I’ve been looking forward to this.

Ring of Honor Date: December 3, 2011 Location: Davis Arena, Louisville, Kentucky Commentators: Kevin Kelly, Nigel McGuinness A few weeks ago I saw a graphic on my screen that said that due to a local contract dispute, I might lose the channel that airs ROH. If that happens, I’m done. I know that’s not something […]
