This is a board for fans of old school wrestling. Feel free to post any rasslin info, but I am really interested in old school wrestlers, matches, fueds, and organizations.
I want to offer a little history and ideas that I want to discuss.
The Organizations
NWA(National Wrestling Alliance)--The oldest of all organizations, and most nationwide. It wasn't owned by any one person. It was ran by a board of promoters, similar to the mob.
AWA(American Wrestling Association)--Formed in the 30's.
Mainly upper midwest, Canada and pacific northwest. Owned by Verne Gagne from the late 60's til it folded.
WWF(WWWF World Wide Wrestling Federartion)--Formed in '60-'61 by a small group of promoters led by Vince McMahon Sr. because they didn't want to recognize that Lou Thesz had won the title back Buddy Rogers.
The Promotions
Central States(MO,KS,IA) Owned by Bob Geigel
Mid-Atlantic(NC,SC, VA and KY) Owned by the Crocketts
Mid-South also known as Wild West or UWF(TX,AK,LA,MS) owned by Bill Watts. Reopened 3 years later by Herb Abrams in some of the same territories because Bill Watts didn't copyright the name
World Class(TX and OK) owned by Fritz Von Erich
Memphis owned by Jerry Lawler
Gateway(Mo,Ill) owned by Sam Muchnick
Georgia owned by Jim Barnettt
Florida
PNW Pacific Northwest or Portland wrestling. Owned and promoted by Don Owen until sold in the late 80s to Sandy Barr
Other Companies
WWA(Detroit, Chicago, Milwaulkee) owned by Dick the Brusier
WWC(Puerto Rico) owned by Carlos Colon
ECW(East Coast)
WCW(Southeast US) owned by Ted Turner was Georgia promotion combined with Mid-Atlantic, and Mid-South. Left NWA in mid 90's.
