NWA: Georgia Championship Wrestling (12.08.79)

Georgia Championship Wrestling
December 8, 1979
Atlanta, GA
WTBS-17 Studios

The current GCW champs are as follows:
NWA World Heavyweight Champion: Harley Race (11/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Heavyweight Champion: The Masked Superstar (12/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Tag Team Champions: Ivan Koloff & Alexis Smirnoff (12/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Television Champion: Austin Idol (12/7/1979)

TIME FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. That’s right. We need to take a break from the WWF and see what else is happening around the world of wrestling here at the end of 1979 and where better to look than at Georgia Championship Wrestling. While this show is incomplete and jumps around, it’s available here on YouTube for all of us to enjoy and there’s enough action here to warrant a watch.

If you’ll notice the champions listed above, Georgia now has THREE NEW CHAMPIONS all in the span of one evening. I don’t know if that is due to lack of knowledge of when the titles changed hands so the researcher added the date of the title changes and chose the day prior to the airing of this show to list the title changes or what exactly. The Masked Superstar defeated Tommy Rich to regain the Georgia Heavyweight title, the Georgia Tag Team champs Ivan Koloff and Alexis Smirnoff beat Ole Anderson and Jerry Brisco, while Austin Idol pinned Ray Candy to win the Georgia TV title. If all of that happened in the same night, it’s pretty incredible and probably should have been mentioned on the show. MAYBE IT WAS. Since this show is incomplete, it’s not really fair to say for sure, so we’ll just move on.

In other news, there’s some interesting babyfaces and you’ll want to see who they are if you enjoy this era of wrestling. So, check it out.

LAST WEEK: The Beach Bullies (Alex Porteau & Shawn Summers) were about to lose to John Tatum and Rod Price when Summers got his team DQ’ed by spraying Price in the eyes with a Super Soaker. That’s the most 90s thing I’ve seen in a long time. If Summers was REALLY a good bully, that Super Soaker would have been filled with bleach.

Your host is David Webb. Chaz stops by to tell us he’ll be wrestling Steven Dane on the program. Once Chaz tells us he will give his all in that match, Webb runs down the rest of the card for today.
