The SmarK Rant for Mid-South Wrestling–03.22.85

(Unfortunately the WWE Network was down on Saturday night when I went to do a rant for this morning, so we might as well carry on with Mid-South because I had already done the next episode, back when they first started adding the Watts footage to the Network in 2015.  I can only hope it’s still down on Sunday night for the PPV.)

The SmarK Rant for WWE Network Hidden Gems – Mid-South Wrestlefest 85

Been waiting to get around to this one for a while now, but nothing like a lazy Sunday to catch up. I did actually start this one last week, but real life intervened and I had to stop and scrap it early on.

Taped from Skelly Stadium, in Tulsa OK, 07.28.85. Not sure on the gate but it looks pretty full. No commentary for this show.

They actually just added a whole bunch more Mid South to the Network, which is apparently the final batch available from the purchase a few years back. So let’s jump ahead a year as we get closer to the “modern” era of the promotion, starting in 1985!

OK, so much like I decided to move ahead a couple of years in Mid-Atlantic because 82 was boring me, 82 is also pretty depressing for Mid-South, so let’s magically wind forward 2 years to the beginning of 1984 instead and see what Bill Watts was up to at the dawn of Hulkamania.

Your host is now young Jim Ross, along with Bill Watts.
