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

Before the program, we see a past interview where the TV champ Steve Austin calls Ricky Steamboat yellow for ducking a title shot because he was home nursing some hurt ribs. Therefore, no more title shots for Ricky Steamboat. Well, Steamboat rips off his Ralph Lauren polo to reveal taped ribs. That proves everything!

NWA World Championship Wrestling
February 28, 1987
Atlanta, GA

Remember when it was announced back in January that Big Bubba and Dusty Rhodes would meet in a “Bunkhouse Stampede” cage match to find the true winner of the Bunkhouse Stampede finals? That match took place in Pittsburgh on the night before this program and we have footage! Jim Cornette introduces Big Bubba, but then the real ring announcer reminds him and everybody in Pittsburgh that Cornette has been BANNED from ringside.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and David Crockett. They announce that Dusty Rhodes has indeed Big Bubba to be crowned the true Bunkhouse Stampede champion. What a shock. Read the rest of this entry

NWA Super Towns on the Superstation

NWA Super Towns on the Superstation
February 7, 1987

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone & David Crockett.

This was a precursor to the Clash of the Champions shows except they still didn’t get it right here and wouldn’t until next year. Here they show off all the towns Jim Crockett Promotions visits and while the card features all the top stars and top matches of the day, it’s just not the same as one card in front of a hot crowd in one city.

Tonight, Magnum TA returns for the first time since his accident in October 1986!

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone & David Crockett. Read the rest of this entry

World Championship Wrestling (01.17.87)

To start the show with a flashback to a recent episode of NWA Worldwide where Barry Windham breaks up a Four Horsemen beatdown on various JTTS. He goes nose-to-nose with Ric Flair, but did they FINALLY meet for the NWA world title?
