GCW: The Last Battle of Atlanta (10.23.83)

GCW: The Last Battle of Atlanta
October 23, 1983
Atlanta, GA
The Omni

One of the most sought after matches in wrestling history that had never been released to the public – until earlier this week by the WWE Network. This is a match without commentary and all we have are hard camera shots with the occasional zoom in and out on the action. I WILL ADMIT – I know very little about the Tommy Rich versus Buzz Sawyer feud in 1982-83 Georgia Championship Wrestling. I know it was a very bloody feud that lasted a year and a half, but I do not have much knowledge as to the why’s of the feud and the angles that made it so memorable for so many people. I do have footage of that era of GCW and will be recapping that at some point in the future.

With all of that said, I would like to do a recap of the Last Battle of Atlanta match and some of the extras that go along with it to maybe help me understand this feud a little better.
