Why the Carolinas?

Hi Scott,

Just wondering has there ever been a real understanding of why the Carolinas was the last territory to fall? It's never really discussed as one of the more important territories and yet sometimes it seems like people use the terms "JCP" and "NWA" interchangably.

Also, how come there were never any important territories in California? You'd think, with such a huge economy, it would've been a prime target for a wrestling stronghold.

​Dude, seriously?  California was a huge wrestling territory from the 50s to the 80s!  Freddie Blassie was a top star there for years and they had their own version of the World title and everything.
