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.

Clash of the Champions #11 (06.90)

NWA Clash of the Champions XI: Coastal Crush
June 13, 1990
Charleston, SC
McAlister Fieldhouse

The current NWA Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Ric Flair (5/7/1989)
U.S. Champion: Lex Luger (5/22/1989)
World Tag Team Champions: Doom (5/19/1990)
U.S. Tag Team Champions: Midnight Express (5/19/1990)
World Television Champion: Arn Anderson (1/2/1990)

Probably not a good idea to open a show with a montage that reminds people of hurricane Hugo that hit Charleston a year earlier that killed 82 people and left over 50,000 homeless. Yeah, not a good idea at all. The name “Coastal Crush” is going a little bit far too if you ask me.

Your hosts are Jim Ross & Bob Caudle. Read the rest of this entry
