WCW: Thunder
March 19, 1998
Terre Haute, IN
Hulman Center

The current WCW champs are as follows:
WCW World Champion: Sting (2/22/1998)
WCW U.S. Champion: Diamond Dallas Page (12/28/1997)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: The Outsiders (2/22/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Booker T (2/22/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Chris Jericho (1/24/1998)

STING REPELLING FROM A HELICOPTER WILL GO DOWN AS THE MOST DRAMATIC ENTRANCE IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. I honestly don’t think it had much of a dramatic tone to it. ‘Over the top’, maybe? But dramatic? Not in my eyes.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, and Lee Marshall. Tony announces that Sting will defend the WCW world title against Randy Savage at Spring Stampede.

Championship Wrestling from Florida: (03.14.87)

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 U.S. Heavyweight Champion: Nikita Koloff (8/17/1986)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: Manny Fernandez & Rick Rude (12/6/1986)
NWA U.S. Tag Team Champions: Barry Windham & Ronnie Garvin (12/9/1986)
NWA World Television Champion: Tully Blanchard (11/27/1986)

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
