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.

Footnotes:
[1]: When WCW withdrew from the NWA in January 1991, the Steiners U.S. tag title reign carried over into the first WCW U.S. Tag Team title reign. They won the WCW World Tag Team titles in March and therefore had to relinquish the belts.
[2]: This was a tournament final.
[3]: The WCW U.S. Tag Team titles were retired in July 1992.
