A Journey Through Memphis: CWA 1/4/1986

Recently, I decided to seek out and obtain Memphis wrestling from 1986 to 1995, at least for now. I’ve been reviewing a bunch of the shows from 1986 and thought it would be a good idea to share them here to read your reactions/memories and maybe get a better idea of what Memphis wrestling was all about. Currently, I’m up to August 1986, but I’ll start from the beginning here.

Girlfriend Watches: WWF SNME #21

In the last poll, there was a tie between ECW Barely Legal 1997 and WCW Bash at the Beach 1996 to be viewed on a future edition. It’s likely that she’ll watch Barely Legal first. There’s no timeframe on when this will happen, but be on the lookout for it!

The previous two editions of this series saw my girlfriend, Carly, watched WCW UnCensored 1995 and WWF King of the Ring 1996. Both of which, are three hour pay per views. This time around, I decided to go with a change of pace and length. Carly sat down and watched a WWF Saturday Night Main Event from 1989. The hour special usually had several high profile matches in a tighter time schedule.

Find out Carly’s reaction to guys like Rick Rude, Randy Savage, Big Bossman, and Demolition!

There were several shows to choose from and I decided to go with an all-time classic… WCW UnCensored ’95. The full card/results for the show are as follows,
