Rock Star Gary presents WCCW Year in Review: 1984

1983 was such a banner year for WCCW. Some would call it WCCW’s best year due to all the great feuds. Of course, the Von Erich-Freebird feud tops the list but also David Von Erich-Jimmy Garvin, “Iceman” King Parsons-Buddy Roberts, and Chris Adams-Jimmy Garvin deserve mention. Of course, the battle of the valets between Sunshine and Precious cannot be ignored.

What happens in 1984? Can WCCW keep the momentum going as their syndicated show gets more coverage across the country?
