NOTE: This show signals the final taping for the World Wide Wrestling Federation, period. On the next series of tapings, the name of the company gets shortened to the World Wrestling Federation that we all know very well. However, the show doesn’t change all that much besides the federation name change and the intro. The show is still just a ring set up in the Hamburg Fieldhouse as it will remain until June 1984.

Championship Wrestling from Florida
March 14, 1987
Tampa, FL
(Taped on 3/11/87)

The NWA & CWF champions were as follows:
NWA World Heavyweight Champion: Ric Flair (8/9/1986)

NWA Florida Heavyweight Champion: Ed Gantner (2/1987)
NWA Florida Tag Team Champions: The Southern Boys (2/21/1987)

When the CWF merged with Jim Crockett Promotions in February, this show evolved into what could be considered a more intimate extension of what they would see every Saturday night at 6:05PM on the MUTHASHIP. They only kept the two Florida titles while bringing in other NWA wrestlers to wrestle, do interviews, and hype upcoming shows.

Your hosts are Gordon Solie & Buddy Colt. Read the rest of this entry

The Owen Hart YouTube Mixtape (Part 1)

Anyone who uses Dailymotion anymore knows they have constant commercial interruptions and I just don’t want to put you through that in order to enjoy this edition of the mixtape. I’m sticking with loyal YouTube that doesn’t succumb us to commercials for wrestling matches because no one can become a partner unless you own the material. Anyways!

So Owen Hart wins by a landslide. Not surprising, but no one even came close. Read the rest of this entry
