George Cannon used to have a promotion that ran in the Ontario, Michigan, Ohio, Quebec region called Superstars of Wrestling. They used to tape out of the University of Windsor sometimes which is where I went to University and it also a 10 minute walk from my house. Lots of older talent who were towards the end of their careers. Mainly WWWF and Montreal guys. Tons of matches on this channel. Interesting promotion. George later sued Vince of the Superstars of Wrestling name. Mainly because Vince took over Cannon's area with the promise that George would promote the area. Which of course Vince reneged on.

Texas had its share of small promotions in the late 80 as WCCW began to unravel. One promotion in particular was called Wild West Wrestling. They used to tape T.V out of a bar called Billy Bob's. It was formed by Ken Mantell in 1987 but later merged with WCCW in 88. Not a ton of footage out there. I'll go over Texas All Star later and Big D.

80's Memphis Wrestling is my favourite federation outside of early/mid 80s WWF (even though objectively Memphis is better)

A match/feud that doesn't get enough love is the Poffos vs Rock &Roll Express.

This match is fucking amazing and you've got to see the end.

Great additions Gert! What I wouldn't give to be at the Mid South Coliseum on a night like that.

Best Bob Backlund match I've ever seen. Adonis is probably the most under-rated wrestler of all time. His MSG title match vs Backlund in 82 is also terrific. I actually spoke to Backlund on facebook about this match. He was very proud of it. Really cool guy.

Haven't done this in a bit.

Here's a fun promotion run by Jerry Blackwell in the Georgia area called Southern Championship Wrestling. It featured guys like Brusier Brody, Tommy Rich, and a young Paul Heyman. It ran from 88 to 90 before Blackwell sold to the recently departed Joe Pedicino and became Georgia All Star Wrestling. Really fun piece of footage here. Check er out.

I love these small southern promotions that popped up in the mid to late 80s. I'll go over IWCCW which was up north later.

In 1977 Atlantic Grand Prix was formed by Emilie Dupree. This territory was based out of the Maritime Provinces in Eastern Canada. Not a huge territory but a popular stop for wrestlers like Leo Burke, The Stomper, Bulldog Bob Brown. Not a ton of footage out there, but an interesting watch. It's also where JJ Dillon got his first booking job.

Your additions are perfect and I was hopeful you'd share here. I've been in a season of transition, watching more archived MMA than wrestling at the moment. I get the same nostalgia seeing the creation and development of that sport too.

This is fucking amazing. It's an angle from Georgia Championship Wrestling 1980 where the Russians (Koloff and Smirnoff) defeat Kevin Sullivan and Tony Atlas by using ether on a rag. The post match is the best where Gordon Solie interviews fans about what happened. Amazing.
